my programm is going to work on a i386 (32bit) with win2000. So the largest value a variable can holt is 32 bit, with unsigned long. however, i need to wirk with values up to 64bit. how can i do this? i need to be able to access these numbers, calculate with them and so on.
thanks for help
i am curently using vc++: is the variable defntn then
if i want to keep my code portable, which way would i go? i once read in an assembler book that you can "link" two 32bit registers together. i'm very unsure about that. but it should be possible to define one int as a high part and the other as the lower. (with that we could create 128bit and so on). i just got stuck how to work with that.
anyway, i think i'll gona use the __int64. but i am interested in the answer on my second question anyways :-)
The best way is to typedef __int64 int64 or something similar.
