you had problems understanding my style,
Oh contriare!. I understood your "style". Hence my characterisation.
It's not? What's the size of an int in MS's 64-bit compiler?
If you don't know that, what makes you think that you are in a position to offer advice?
And what the f*** has int got to do with the matter. (And (please) don't answer that, because the answer is (obviously) "Nothing!").
You're misunderstanding of the purpose and function of compiler intrinsics is both manifest and legion.
The whole point of ptrdiff_t (and all such compiler intrinsics) is that they are intelligent definitions that morph with respect to the compilation target. Hence, your question and your conflation, is manifest.
Proudly. I don't just give the answer, I explain what the problem is. Teach a man to fish and all that.
Ha! You really believe that don't you.
Heads up, you're wrong. On just about every level possible.
Now please. Just stop talking.
