    Open source 64 bit compilers?

    are any of the open source compilers able to compile into native 64 bit code? Id like to write a program that uses the 64 bit registers. I know VS 2005 will target native 64 bit code, but I need something for at home.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    MinGW has 64-bit support in the most recent builds.

    ok, then Dev-C++ should be able to produce 64 bit executable code, yes?

    If you download the appropriate compiler from the MinGW site and install it where your dev-C++ IDE can see it, yes.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    But I don't think the Dev-C++ interface offers a configuration option for it, so you'll have to do that yourself. (If the compiler requires an explicit switch to make it emit 64-bit code, that is.)
