[zeromq-dev] Just ran some tests with x64

Heh. Your guess is correct!

Followed the note on the site about how to build for x64 and just went with it. So far so good but was just wondering if anyone hit any snags.

Lots of warnings in the compile about possible loss of data but the tests are running great.

Is this a tested scenario? Do I need to dig into each warning?

Depends on the compiler, the platform, and what you are building, from your email address I'm taking a wild guess at MSVC 2010 on Windows 7?


PGM compiles without warnings in MSVC as I've tested several times, ZeroMQ has been varied but not overly well maintained because the testing has been with MSVC Express which doesn't support x64.  There certainly have been a few posts recently discussing it though.

Compilers like ICC just emit too many warnings by default though, and GCC slowly gains more and more useless warnings enabled by default as noted recently by Linus on LKML.
