Huge Size Hello world with FreeRTOS on NIOS II

Honored Contributor II

Hello everyone, 


I've created hello world program with FreeRTOS on NIOS II based on CYCLONE III FPGA. 

Elf file created is of huge size, 8244 kbytes to be exact. 

This is size is not acceptable as I intend to run code from on-chip memory and I've only 128 KB on-chip memory available. 

I've tried hello world program with uCOSII as well and elf size is 102 KB only. 


Can anybody please suggest why hello world based on FreeRTOS is so large in size ? 


Thank you,
