    Borland command line question

    Why don't Borland's tools accept long long and long long int as variable types? Is there any way to change this or work around it?
    Code:
    void function(void)
     {
      function();
     }

    I've heard that in Borland C long long is spelled like __int64 (with two underscores). See if it works...
    The OS requirements were Windows Vista Ultimate or better, so we used Linux.

    As far as I know, there is no standard for 64 bit integers so each compiler writer is free to make up their own.

    It is not that old programmers are any smarter or code better, it is just that they have made the same stupid mistake so many times that it is second nature to fix it.
