Hi James,

As a general rule, tokenized basic programs are smaller than compiled C

The real question is which 2k, source, or tokenized.  :)

With something other than BASIC, for instance, C, you can keep the code 
use minimal by using ROM routines instead of the standard libraries. 
You could also support some kind of binary encoding, like huffman 
coding, which would most likely take less space in C than BASIC.
