the mention Rick!

ok, so its not my fault that I can't install the 64bit version via 
flinux. Then I wait for that very interesting project of yours.
Thanks for all the hints and links

64/blob/master/src64/arch/win-x86-64.l, to support the different ABI 
calling convention. It relies on midipix which is still in alpha and 
hasn't yet been released which is why I haven't actively promoted it. 
There's a few workarounds still in the code too, for example dlopen 
isn't yet implemented in midipix so ht ext: code needs to be compiled 
into the picolisp binary,
