I have been giving this a lot of thought, and i came to the conclusion that
mIRC should have the ability to compile a *.exe file for use on windows outside
of the mIRC executable using mSL!

I know people would love this, especially people that create mIRC games and stuff!

Please give this some consideration...

Sounds like you're referring to something like the basic compiler that came with some of the earlier versions of DOS. Where, instead of running the .BAS source file through the interpreter, it could be compiled into a .COM file. And later on it could compile into a larger EXE in Visual Basic.

Those compiled programs came in 2 flavors. One was a respectably small program, but it required the presence of a 'runtime' DLL. Otherwise, it could be compiled into a version which didn't require the presence of a runtime module, but it was much larger, because it contained support for pretty much everything in the language. A "hello world" program could be several hundred KB in size.
