I just installed Python 2.7.5 64-bit () on a Windows 7 64-bit OS computer.
When I evaluate sys.maxint I don't get what I was expected. I get this:
Python 2.7.5 (default, May 15 2013, 22:44:16) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)]
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> import platform
>>> import os
Should I not get a 64-bit integer maxint (9223372036854775807) for
Or is there something I am missing here?
