He has also provided a list of the files in 64bit linux Poplog that differ from
corresponding 32bit linux Poplog files. This may be useful for anyone attempting
to make further changes to the 64bit files. The list of files that differ is

Subject: AMD64 port Date: Wed, 9 Feb 2005 05:03:39 +0100 (CET) From: Waldek Hebisch I have put preliminary version of AMD64 port at: http://www.math.uni.wroc.pl/~hebisch/poplog/amd64-poplog.html It is a patch on top of Birmingham 15.53f version (the patch is 90kb in size). As I wrote the system can re-build itself successfully. It created saved images for pop11, prolog, clisp, pml. It includes text mode ved. All things that I tested work, in particular external calls with single and double precision floating point arguments, callbacks from external functions to Poplog and external closures. This version contain no X support. I principle X may just work after enabling it in the build scripts, but I have not tried it. -- Waldek Hebisch firstname.lastname@example.org

This directory contains a (Jan 2010) 64bit linux poplog package assembled by Waldek Hebisch
copied from his web site
'diff' comparison with version v15.61-amd64 excluding documentation.
'diff' comparison with version v15.63 (i386) excluding documentation.
The above tar.bz2 package contains a 'build_popn' script which is also available here for inspection:
Please look at that if you want to know how that version of poplog can be built.
I hope it will be possible at some point to merge this more fully into the Birmingham linux poplog package tree.
