Just for me because I need this as a snippet:
int leftbits = (int)(longvar>> 32);
gives you the left bits, and
long tlong= ((longvar>> 32) << 32);
int rightbits= (int)(longvar- tlong);
gives you to right bits of a 64 bit number.
Consider turning this into a macro or a function, but I’m not sure how often I’m gonna need it… Part of me thinks this 64bit number is just for upward compatibility..
