I'm new to geos and have just downloaded an svn snapshot and built the
libraries on windows XP using the visual studio solution files in
build/msvc80 using 2005 Express edition. I am using the library via the
shapely python interface and it seems to work.
However the resulting geos.lib is 113Mb which is twice the size of the
debug build (47 Mb). I find hard to believe the release lib is bigger
than the debug lib and all this from 6Mb of source (using it will triple
the size of my app!!). I am a C person and have never touched C++
before and I just wanted to check that these file sizes are correct.
