As John and I stated, 'small' is hard to define in the context of large-ish
C++ applications / libraries. The C++ source of RQuantLib are small (around
60kb) and I could probably trim that further for an example ... but it would
still need QuantLib itself which is rather larger. Would that be helpful or
I have no clue what parts of QuantLib itself cause the compiler and linker to
go gaga. You'd need a real C++ export to figure that out. I am CCing one --
who is also a key developer of QuantLib.
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
