The same thing in a C program needs 270 bytes.

What happens if you code the following in main()
static int x = 0;
I haven't tried it, but my guess would be that the the static storage used by the C program would also be around 4K. If I understand correctly, storage under IBM i is allocated in 4K minimum blocks using system APIs. Wouldn't that be what the compiler would do?
