Nope, Cygwin uses the Windows loader.
Then, how do you do the extra linking? What is producing the "Cygwin
runtime failure" message when loading/linking a DLL fails?
If the medium model is wasteful in clang, that's a clang
optimization problem, not a Cygwin problem.
The medium model in Clang is not wasteful. It does exactly what it is
designed to do. It was never designed with Cygwin in mind. The program
build with a medium model is wasteful because it makes all addresses 64
bits when few or no addresses actually need to be 64 bits.
It is not for my own project. I am writing manuals on how to optimize
If you want to use the small model in your own projects, great, if it
works for you.
