This is 3,7% increase in speed. If your computer costs 1000$ you
just earned 37$ just by downloading and installing the 64bit sdcc

I tested the 64 bit verison "SDCC
3.0.4 #6848 (Sep 10 2011) (MINGW64)" just now. It works ok,
generated code same as the 32 bit version, with same problems,
which I filed a bug report earlier.
I used command line like
"C:\SDCC\BIN\sdcc sipr.c -mz80 -c --std-c99 --codeseg CODE7",
with 32 bit version, it takes me 28 minutes to compile all my
files. Guess how long it takes with 64 bit? 27 minutes! What
is the good for the 64 bit?
I am using 64 bit Windows Vista.

sdcc snaphot build plarform: 64 bit Windows
Hi sdcc users and developers,
if you carefully looked to the SDCC Snapshot Build web page, you
might noticed two new items: "Windows 64bit (experimental)
(x86_64-w64-mingw32)" and "Windows 64bit package with installer
Both contains the native 64 bit Windows compiled sdcc suite. The
builds are done on Erik's cf-x86 amd64 Fedora 12 Linux machine,
cross-compiled in mingw_w64 environment (libraries, header
files, ...) with x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc (GCC) 4.5.4
(prerelease). Regression test are ran on the same machine with
wine64 and they all pass.
The zip packages
sdcc-snapshot-x86_64-w64-mingw32-yyyymmdd-bbbb.zip are quite
complete. The only remaining TODO is compilation of 64 bit
readline5.dll and it's inclusion.
The setup package still needs some work:
Any reports of successful or unsuccessful installation &
execution are welcome!
- I just noticed that it has to be renamed since the name is
same as for 32 bit packages. The new name will probably be
- Detection when trying yo install 64 bit package on 32 bit
- Proper installation in 64 bit registry and in 64 bit
"Program Files". Currently it is incorrectly installed as 32
bit application in "Program Files (x86)" directory.
- Already mentioned inclusion of 64 bit readline5.dll
Thanks to Erik Petrich to upgrade cf-x86 to Fedora 12 (glibc
2.11 is required by brebuild mingw_w64) and to gcc, mingw_w64
and wine teams to make this possible.
