Thanks for the offer, Dave. Sunfreeware now boasts a gcc that "can
create 64-bit executables via the -m64 flag as well as the usual 32-bit
ones." I don't think this was available the first time I tried this.
Since this is now a don't-need-it-but-it-would-be-nice-to-try-it kind of
project, I think I'll try that one and let you know if I have problems
I have to finish the Oracle8i to 9i database upgrade test on my spare U1
before I can go back to the Informix 64-bit test. I finally gave up on
the 64-bit Informix setup for the Navy, partly because the Informix
folks told me that the benefits for us would be negligible. And, if I
did the switch, I'd have to recompile all the 4gl and the runners and so
on. Further, this is a temporary (1-2 years only) setup.
I take it that "64-bit capable" is a better descsription than plain
64-bit? I assume then that it makes either 64-bit or 32-bit executables.
And, just because the 32-bit gcc can make a 64-bit gcc doesn't mean that
it can make a 64-bit anything-else, right?
