64bit version

Post by geordi »

Are there plans for 64bit version?

I need often to compare quite huge log files (200MB+) and Compare It fails (I think due to memory usage). On standard 32bit OS there is limit of 2GB address space per process. On 64bit OS there is no such limit for 64bit processes.
4GB+ of RAM is not a problem these days, so why not use available memory for comparison.

Thank you for suggestion. I'm planning to add 64b version, but not in near future. I'm also planning to create special version for large files, which will not try to load it fully into memory.
