  • If we're still reading blogs and using 32-bit computers in 2038, I'm going to be a very grumpy old man.


    • Some OSes such as FreeBSD/sparc are already using 64 bit time_t's I believe. I'm not sure how badly this affects the ability of software to be ported to them. Mind you, I thought the whole point of having a specific type time_t was so that you coudl redefine it... C. Dontcha just love it.


      • 32-bit int, just say no.

        My next two Perls are going to be 64 bit ... really. Bjorn in perl.dbi.user [] reports "A succesfull 64-bit build of Perl-DBI-DBD:Oracle on IBM AIX 5.2"; I'm going to try building 5.8.6 with DBI and DBD::DB2 shortly. And my other other project is on an Alpha, where the only Perl is 64 bit. (I hope there's a Deb for DBD::MySQL for that platform ;-)
