It should - but there might be some caviats.

Suppose you generated an integer on your 64 bit machine longer than 32 bits.
That is
larger than 2^32 (~4,000,000,000. There is no way that the 32 bit machine
prepresent it so this wouldn't work. This isn't a problem with the library
an inherent limitation representing 64 bit integers on a 32 bit machine.

Other than this, it shold be fine.
