#427 precompiler RexxC


There is a known restriction with the precompiled images:
they must adhere to the interpreter's architectur 32-bit ir 64-bit.
That means, if you are distributing precompiled images, you have to generate two versions and distribute the right one.

It would be halpful to have the interpreter use a common pseudo-code not depending on it's architectur,
like the IBM Host Rexx Compiled does (useing the same pseudo code on z/OS, VSE and VM under all architectures 24-bit, 31-bit and 64-bit)

But at least, if you are not able to support a common pseudo-code, it must be possible to generate both versions on the same machine.
It is not reasonable to transfer the rexx-procedure to another machine to have the second pseudo-code image produced.

thx a lot, Michael

    Changed the priority, and hopefully get an aswer !!!

    This is not really feasible. The mechanisms used to create the compiled versions do not translate well into supporting both 32- and 64-bit interoperability. The effort required to rearchitect this is such that this is not likely to happen in light of other priorities.
