Re: [cdt-dev] EDC on 64-bit Linux?

Great point Lothar. But downloads is the only data we have. The 64-bit number is pretty high in my books, and you need to consider that a fair number of 32-bit users are probably building 64-bit apps.

I am curious, too. What do Eclipse downloads have to do with the native binary
format used for Linux distributions?

Sure most distros can run legacy 32 bit binaries, too and we actually develop
our C++ software as both 32bit and 64bit, so we need to be able to debug 32bit
as well as 64bit apps. However we already plan to phase out 32bit support, as
all modern machines are 64bit.
