How can I support 64-bit integers on a 32-bit system? I need to do division on numbers exceeding 4.3 billion. I have the resaults in a char value, and would like to convert the value to a 64-bit integer, if possible. If not, do you know of a way to translate the resault of a float division into a more human readable format?
As with so many questions I see here, this depends on your compiler, which you didn’t specify.
If, like me, you are using Visual C++, you can declare a 64-bit integer like this:
Some systems use this:
long long i;
You’ll need to refer to your compiler’s documentation to determine if this is something it supports.
