given the availability of msys2 tools http://www.msys2.org/ on windows 64 is in theory possible to compile pd and pd externals for win64?
pd and pd externals compile on win 64bit
Yes, it just needs a lot of testing and debugging:
There's a Purr Data branch with some initial changes to allow compilation under the msys2 64bit environment here:
However, I haven't changed the build instructions-- which may have some 32-bit specific parts to it.
I just merged master into that branch, so if you want to experiment with compiling it you can pull from that branch.
I compile libpd for Windows 64 and it seems to work.
The only thing to define is
The pull request with the branch that I use.
