Instead of a puny 2147483647 Blitz could go up to a whopping 9,223,372,036,854,775,807

BlitzmaxNG can compile to 64 bit, plus there are add-on math libraries that allow you to use arbitrarily long numbers.

You can already do 64 bit long numbers in blitz products that support the 'Long' type. They will be signed as opposed to unsigned, so they'll range from -9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807.

NG gives you signed and unsigned types so if you wanted to you can have an unsigned long that will allow a range from 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615.
NG can also create native x64 applications - as in 64bit pointers for memory addresses plus other some goodies that native x64 compilations give you.
