[Ironpython-users] should 64 bit sys.maxsize be fixed?

Thanks, Jeff, that sheds proper light on the subject. I now have it
through my head what "maxsize" means. I was hoping for a single test which
would detect 64-bit-ed-ness in both Iron and C Python, but it was not to
be. Looks like I'll have to detect platform first before testing for word
size. But I am going to blindly assume that any Python which does not
define sys.maxsize is 32 bit -- I think that will be safe enough.
By the way -- to help thick headed persons like me who might occasionally
slip and use the old <users at lists.ironpython.com>
address, it would be nice if the "you screwed up" message which is
automatically sent to the sender... were changed to a "you screwed up but I
am fixing it for you" message. That way no one else will post the same
message twice when he tries to fix his own mistake.
