Please issue X64 (64-bit) version for Windows X64 users

Daqiang Zhang
Dear Dev,

http://code.google.com/p/vim-win3264/wiki/Win64Binaries have ported Vim to run natively on Windows X64 systems. My colleagues and I have used it in our X64-based windows, and find that Vim 64-bit
version is desirable. To my knowledge, there is no official Vim X64 version issued. So I would like to ask the main dev to issue the 64-bit version of next Vim distribution (e.g., Vim 7.3 X64).

Best Regards
Daqiang Zhang

I think the C source already takes note of whether the int type is 32 or
64 bits (or even 16). I haven't checked the Makefiles (for Windows there
are several) but you might check what the ones in the "official" sources
look like. And then there's the question of compiling it: I'm not sure
whether Bram and/or Steve Hall have the use of a 64-bit Windows system,
but maybe (after checking the Makefile for your compiler to see that it
implements 64-bit objects if available) you could compile it yourself?

Or if the official Makefiles for Window don't yet foresee 64-bit
compilation, it could quite possibly be already in the pipeline. I think
Bram hasn't yet finished to surprise us with "nice new features" for Vim
7.3 (after variable line numbers, strong encryption, and additional
float functions, which are already in).


Best regards,
Tony.
