[chuck-users] ChucK on 64-bit Linux, bad news

Dear all,

Thanks again for the input and sorry for punctuating the spam  
equilibrium with my barrage of posts!  I think with the recent posts,  
we are definitely narrowing down a list of high priority targets for  
the next round of development.  We'd love to see 64-bit ChucK happen,  
but don't have a good idea of how soon we can get that done.  We will  
investigate it in the next few weeks and come up with a plan of attack.

Thanks again for the continued input on this.  Earlier posts on 64- 
bit can be found here and probably a few other places:
