Don't believe Wikipedia. The part, "produces very small executables" is rubbish. Use your own judgment and ask yourself, how much size optimizations can a _tiny_ C compiler have.

So now for the questions :
- Is the analysis proposed above correct ? Or need to be elaborated ?
- Is it even an objective for TCC to generate small-size exe ?

How many hundred hours of manpower can you contribute to code the optimizations? :-)
