Not all IDEs are this large.  For instance, Apple's Project Builder
(version 2.1) is 2.6 MB, while the Mac version of CodeWarrior Pro 8 is
9.9 MB.  These sizes are just the executables, and don't include
compilers, linkers, libraries, headers, documentation and examples.  But
you would need all these things for a command line based development

fills his victims full of dread 
Running as fast as they can 
Iron Man lives again!
