"-otexan" gives many of results in Google. ;-)
It's slightly faster here on Windows XP.

"-6" (together with "-otexan") speeds up things a lot.
Does a 8086 still run "-6" code?

I've uploaded If anyone could test this, please?! :-)
b64_ow: wcl.exe -q -otexan b64.c & upx.exe --best --lzma --all-filters --8086
b64_ow6: wcl.exe -q -otexan -6 b64.c & upx.exe --best --lzma --all-filters

I just noticed 2007 or 2010 "JED" in my "Projects" folder. You asked me once to upload this stuff so you could grab and release it. Meanwhile you built 0.99-19, but didn't release a binary, which is little useless for DOS users. Therefore I'd like to get JED for DOS released some day.
