I cannot answer your original question, but you were looking at the wrong
comparison. This article compares the AMD and Intel implementations of
the AMD64 / EM64T instruction set, which is "just" an extension of the
traditional x86 instruction set and completely different from the IA64
architecture instruction set (http://de.wikipedia.​org/wiki/IA64).

However, I do not knows eigther architecture sufficiently well to be able
to explain this size difference.

Greetings and a Happy New Year!

Binary size on ia64?

Message Hello developers!


Looking at http://packages.debi​an.org/sid/fsvs I see that the binary size of
fsvs is 276 kB on amd64 ... but 504 kB on ia64!

Is that just the bigger instruction lengths, or what else? Can somebody
explain me the difference?
(Yes, I looked at
http://en.wikipedia.​org/wiki/X86-64#Diff​erences_between_AMD6​4_and_Intel_64 -
but I haven't found something related)


Regards,

Phil
