This may be a fairly obvious question, but since Go seems to be quite
clever at circumventing various limitations, I wanted to see what the
bottom line was with this:
Since I have a 64 bit version of Go installed on my 64 bit system,
what happens if you try to use a 64 bit numeric type on a 32 bit
system? Will the compiler complain? Does it allow it, and just use
some clever tricks to contain such a large number? Or is this only a
concern with pointer values?
I'm slightly rusty on some of the finer points of theoretical OS
studies, and architectures.
The answer may cause me to have a "Duh" moment, but bear with me, as
I've been awake for long hours.
