I saw that already. Its not available on 32 bit Windows through packagers http://code.activestate.com/ppm/Math-Int64/.

    I was thinking more along the lines of you could steal the initialisation code from it to add to your XS wrapper of the C library you are trying to access.

    However, you should also be able to compile it with CPAN or manually without difficulty.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      I probably can compile it, I probably could fix it if I had to. It would be perfect except for the ActiveState unavailability, so if I list it as a pre-req, my module won't build on ActiveState's system. I see the author of Math::Int64 has made 4 devel version releases since the last stable release. ActiveState's packager doesn't build or see devel releases though. To embed it without using its C api (not create a pre-req), the entire thing would have to be copy pasted because of its operator overloading.
        Have you considering asking Math::Int64 author to solve those issues?

    For the record, both bribes and sisyphusion repos provide ppm packages for Math::Int64.

    Cheers,
