Not a problem but does Mathomatic build as a 64 bit app on Mac OS/X?

Asked by wizard on 2009-10-28

The summary pretty much sums it up, I'm wondering of mathomatic builds as a 64 bit app on Mac OS/X? For that matter does it built 64 bit on Linux.

Under Mac OS X Leopard and Linux, Mathomatic can be compiled to use a 64 bit architecture using the following commands:

    make clean
    CFLAGS=-m64 LDFLAGS=-m64 make READLINE=1
    make test

It appears to be only 10 percent faster than using 32 bit code.
Mac OS X Snow Leopard compiles to 64 bit code by default, you need to use the -m32 option to compile for 32 bits there for comparison.

Thanks for the question!

Mathomatic compiles and runs under any machine architecture, 64-bit, 128-bit, etc. Mathomatic is available for 64-bit architectures in Ubuntu and Debian with "apt-get install mathomatic" on those architectures. No changes need to be made to the Mathomatic source code.
