[REBOL] Re: rebol 3 => 64 Bit problems

I have REBOL 2 running on several 64-bit machines: $ uname -m x86_64 $ file `which rebol` /usr/local/bin/rebol: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped $ rebol -qw --do 'print system/version' So I don't really see what's becoming "inoperable" here? Neither Linux nor Windows has any troubles running "legacy" 32-bit executables on 64-bit systems, if necessary. On some Linux systems, you have to take some care (e.g. make sure the "ia32-libs" package is installed on Ubuntu), but generally that's not an issue. -- Regards, Andreas
