As soon as you want to do serious numerical experiments you
might want to be able to use the memory available in todays
machines delivered by Sun to scientists. Our machine here at the
institute has 32GB of RAM and 8 processors. Sometimes, I use all
the memory for one single process (well, running on one processor

If the compiler has the ability to generate 64bit code, it
should also be supported. It would be nice if bjam would have
such a feature. Right now, I use the address-mode trick as
suggested by you in <200407201631.49987.ghost_at_[hidden]>.
