Does your favorite C++ compiler support 64-bit integer types?

But .NET is not yet an 64-bit virtual machine.

DJGPP also provides 64 bit integer type, as also MINGW (both GCC ports).

#include <iostream>
#include <limits>

// Not ISO C++98 code
int main()
using namespace std;

cout<<numeric_limits<long long>::max()<<endl;


C:\c>gpp temp.cpp -o temp


C:\c>\mingw\bin\g++ temp.cpp -o temp


And of course GCC for 32-bit GNU/Linux does the same.
