It was ages ago, so I might have trouble locating the source, but I got
a win32 exe+dll down to a combined size of 17kb, including a short
luac'ed script dumping hello world 10 times.
I'll have a look if I can find it again, in the depths of my
test-folders with inconsistent names... :)

Periodically we have discussions about how best to reduce the size of
the Lua interpreter. There seem to be a number of techniques for doing
this --- removing the compiler, the libraries, the list of opcodes,
etc. But I can't find any definitive documentation on what can do
done, and how effective it is.
I am now in a position where I'd like to embed a minimised Lua
interpreter in an application. If I really try hard, what kind of size
am I looking at? Are there any on-line resources that can assist me (I
can't find anything in the wiki)?
