Long Long - Using the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC)



This is awesome. On Windows they have DWORD (for double word) and QWORD (for quad word).



The rest of the world (I think this is a standard) has "long int" for a double word and (this is the great part) "long long int" for a quad word.



I think it would be cooler if it was called "really long int", because that extends into the future better.



For 128 bit platforms, you could have "really really long int", and so on, forever. That's much better than "long long long int."
