Hi Harald,

thanks for your answer. Until now, I had develop AVR-projects only in  
the AVR-Studio which told me the memory usage after compiling. So I  
didn't care about the hex-file :-)

The size of my .bin-File is 93 KB and the last memory adress in  
the .hex-file ist 10730. So everything should be fine ^^.

Best regards,
