This TIP proposes to make
--enable-64bit the default
Since 64-bit systems are gradually taking over 32-bit systems, it makes sense to change the default from 32-bit to 64-bit.
This document proposes:
configureis run without
--disable-64bit, then the script behaves as if --enable-64bit is given.
If you want a 32-bit build, you should explicitly specify
That will work with any Tcl version, older ones too.
A reference implementation is available in the tip-549 branch. https://core.tcl-lang.org/tcl/timeline?r=tip-549
