    Default exerb: packer?

    Is it safe to use executable packer (like UPX) to the .exe generated by
    Exerb? I've tried with some simple scripts and it seems to work ok.

    what about isng lzma compression in exerb? the latest nsis installer
    does it, and the 7zip compressor does it too. It seem it should get
    20% less than bzip2

    Thanks, I didn't know that exerb can produced compressed binary. I've
    just read recipe.en.rd. However, exerb doesn't seem to recognize the
    compress directive or the --compress option. This is exerb 3.2.0.

    I also just found out about 7zip. Very cool, Thanks! (Hopefully it will
    be available in other platforms beside Windows soon).

    I believe that exerb no longer supports compression option since 3.0.0,
    though it used to be supported by previous versions.

    wow, then definitely using an external compression tool will be
    needed... compression makes a *huge* difference on fxruby apps (eg 5Mb
    -> 1.8Mb for small apps where most of the code is FOX and FXRuby).

    Has anyone re-built FXRuby to omit classes they don't use? Is this
    process easy or involved?
