The problem is that the D code produces an huge executable.

Thank you, that fixes the problem, the exe size is now a more normal 180.252 bytes :-)

I think the D compiler has to take a look at the size of the static arrays, if they are too much large, then their initialization has to be done with a loop, avoiding the creation of such huge executables.
