Adam, the fact is that since Mac is based on a Unix system, I assume that long
is 32 bit on 32 bit system and 64 bit on 64 bit system. As normally all Unices
use the LP64 model.
On windows, long is 32bit on both 32-bit and 64-bit windows whereas the 64-bit
type is long long or __int64. Long long is built-in type for both MSVC since
.NET 2003 and for gcc.
This is just to assure that the type there is able to hold a pointer because we
cast a pointer into it at a certain point of time.
