There are a lot of hashed files that are 64 bit - what do you to to
convert them?

Because UniVerse runs in a virtual machine (the "run machine") that is
customized to each of the platforms on which it runs, you'd be
pleasantly surprised at how little difference switching hardware makes.
I've certainly moved suites of programs, which ran without needing to be
recompiled (the run machine itself detects byte order). The only
problems I would foresee would be
(a) 64-bit hashed files are (cannot be) supported on 32-bit platforms,
so if you have any of these they will need to be converted to 32-bit,
Distributed if too large
(b) pathnames, particularly embedded pathnames (of secondary indices If
you are using SQL capability, you should use FORMAT.CONV with its
-export and -import capabilities.  This is the recommended/approved
mechanism for moving SQL schemas.
