Hi,

is anybody against turning on USE_64_BIT_INT in coming 32bit Strawberry Perl 5.18.x series ?


I have done some testing with PDL guys approx a year ago on 5.16.0 (I guess Rob is also subscribed to this list) and AFAIK it works.

Pros:

1/ perl core 5.17.* supports building perl with USE_64_BIT_INT on MSWin without any special hacking that was needed for 5.16.0

2/ PDL users are gonna like it

3/ Cool stuff like https://metacpan.org/module/Mango will work on 32bit strawberry perl

4/ Couple of others asking me privately will appreciate it (they ask: why 32bit cygwin perl can have 64_BIT_INT and 32bit strawberry not?)
