I don't think think SourceForge supports the latter.
Hm? I was talking about the downloads page at lazarus.freepascal.org. Or is that generated somehow?

Well yes the link to 64 bit could be removed there. But yes it means editing a script.

Anyway, that link itself is not so bad. It still links to a version that works on win64.
The issue was that people would think it links to the wrong download, and would search the 64 bit themself. So now if they find it, they will now....

If I find time, *maybe* it can be done with the next release....
Adding the file at sourceforge was less work

Why free pascal supress the "extended" floating point type on win64 platform? Then how to achieve high precision floating point operation on win64 platform?


This Embarcadero document has an explanation. As I read it, it's Win64 itself that is the issue.

"In Win64, the precision of floating-point computations was reduced from extended (10-byte values) to double (8-byte values)."

http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE3/en/W1066_Lost_Extended_floating_point_precision._Reduced_to_Double_(Delphi)
The issue of win64 itself? But the following codes work well on win64:
Code: [Select]
  x:=1;
  y:=1e-17;
  asm
    finit;
    fld x;
    fld y;
    fadd;
    fld x;
    fsub;
    fstp x;
  end;
  writeln(x);
which shows

tested on win8.1 64bit.

I don't see how you'd implement

Honestly, you can't expect me to know the inner workings of the website. I had no idea that was generated. I'm an oldfashioned kind of guy; for me, changing a web page is just modifying some HTML. And that's really not hard to do, last time I checked 8)

Beware - Latest Kaspersky anti visus incompatability

We have found that the latest Kaspersky anti virus is hostile to the Lazarus Pascal
open source setup program.

The two files which are blocked completely even when
     Kaspersky is apparently disabled are:-

     [1] c:\lazarus\fpc\2.6.4\bin\i386-32\fpc.exe

     [2] c:\lazarus\fpc\2.6.4\bin\i386-win32\fpcmkcfg.exe

Please file a bug/complaint/issue with Kaspersky to get them to unblock the file. There's nothing FPC/Lazarus can do unfortunately.
