I have a dll with a big pile of functions in it. This wouldn''t normally be a problem except that I''m only exporting a couple of them and those are only useing about 15 more. Which means that I have a slightly smaller big pile of functions that are not being used and not being exported. If I look in my .map file I find that these functions, even though they are in no way being used, are takeing up a HUGE amoung of space (about 400k). The obvious solution is to remove the unused functions from my code, but I will probably be using alot of them later and dont really want to go though them all looking for the ones I dont need for the moment. Is there any compiler option that removes unused code from the final build? (I''m using MSVC by the way) thanks
