      I checked the patch on Windows with the following compilers:

      * MSVC10 (32 bit) + Ruby 2.0.0
      * MinGW (64 bit) + Ruby 2.0.0

      Both worked fine.

      Thanks,
      Ken Takata

            Was this patch applied already?

            I tried compiling a 64 bit windows but if failed complaining that some include file could not be found.

            If possible could this patch be included for the next release?
            A small example on how to use rubydo (similar to the example on how to use perldo) would be useful for people like me, that don't know much about ruby but would like to learn.

            Also for the next release, if possible would it be possible to distribute a 64 bit for windows as well a 32 bit?

            Thanks!

              It's not all that useful. It uses more memory, is probably a bit
              slower. I haven't heard real practical advantages. But perhaps that
              changed with Windows 8?

                From http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Where_to_download_Vim, reasons one might want a 64-bit version:

                1. Editing files >4GB in size.
                2. 64-bit WinPE does not have a WOW64 subsystem, hence you cannot run a 32-bit executable.
                3. Windows Server 2008 R2 (i.e. Win7 Server) also does not have the WOW64 subsystem, by default, although it is an optional component you can install.
                4. Potential for performance gains, particularly in heavy memory operations like memcpy and memcmp which can be optimized for the 64-bit word size.
                5. Getting 32-bit Vim into a 64-bit "Edit with Vim" context menu entry is tricky.

                Also, related to WOW64, accessing native commands which only have a 64-bit version (like chcp) will fail without a workaround.

                  Well, I have downloaded the 64 bit 2.0-p195 rubyinstaller from http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/
                  and configured ruby with
                  RUBY="C:\htemp\Ruby200-x64" DYNAMIC_RUBY=yes RUBY_VER=20 RUBY_VER_LONG=2.0.0 ^

                  when compiling I get the error:
                  c:\htemp\ruby200-x64\include\ruby-2.0.0\ruby/ruby.h(24) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'ruby/c
                  onfig.h': No such file or directory
                  NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\BIN\x86_amd64\cl.EXE"' : r
                  eturn code '0x2'
                  Stop.

                  if I don't include the configuration for ruby then I can compile fine (Included patches 1-944).

                  Is there a different installer I should be using or different configuration options?

                  I am not sure how much bigger the memory usage will be, but I would not think it would be that big.
                  64 bit windows users will probably already use 64 bit python and perl so if there is a 64 bit vim they won't have to install additional 32 bit versions.

                    I'm not so sure you can use rubyinstaller.org version to compile with Visual Studio. You need to either use MinGW compiler (probably the easiest) or recompile Ruby yourself with MS compiler.

                    # To build with MinGW:

                    1. Get MSYS and unpack to c:\msys :
                    http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbuilds/files/external-binary-packages/

                    2. Get MinGW and unpack to c:\mingw64 :
                    http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbuilds/files/host-windows/releases/4.8.0/64-bit/threads-win32/sjlj/

                    3. cd to c:\msys\etc and edit fstab (see fstab.sample). Basically, you need to add this line:

                    c:/mingw64 /mingw

                    4. Start MSYS (c:\msys\msys.bat) and cd to where you have Vim source (use forward slashes). Let's assume you have the source in c:\projects\vim and rubyinstaller.org Ruby is installed to c:\Ruby200:

                    cd /c/projects/vim/src
                    make -f Make_ming.mak RUBY="c:/Ruby200" DYNAMIC_RUBY=yes RUBY_VER=20 RUBY_VER
                    _LONG=2.0.0 ARCH=x86-64


                    # To build with MS compiler:

                    1. Get Ruby source code:
                    http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/

                    2. Unpack to let's say c:\projects\ruby

                    3. Open Visual Studio / Windows SDK command prompt and cd to c:\projects\ruby or where your Ruby source code is and run this (see win32\README.win32 for more info):

                    win32\configure.bat --prefix=/Ruby200-VC --target=x64-mswin64
                    nmake
                    nmake test
                    nmake install

                    4. Now you should have VC++ compiled Ruby in c:\Ruby200-VC and can cd to Vim's src and build Vim with:

                    nmake -f Make_mvc.mak RUBY="c:\Ruby200-VC" DYNAMIC_RUBY=yes RUBY_VER=20 RUBY_VER_LONG=2.0.0 RUBY_PLATFORM=x64-mswin64_100 RUBY_INSTALL_NAME=x64-msvcr100-ruby200

                    Add c:\Ruby200-VC\bin to your PATH and you're good to go.

                      Thanks!

                      For me compiling ruby with visual studio was the way to go since I have tried to build with mingw and python and for some reason it did not link correctly (the 32 bit version works fine).

                          Isn't that already possible? It's going to be slow anyway.

                          Not a very common system.

                          But moving 64 bits things arounds is slower, net gain or loss needs to
                          be measured.

                          or the view out my window are purely coincidental. Any resemblance between

                          exercise for the reader. The question of the existence of the reader is left
                          as an exercise for the second god coefficient. (A discussion of
                          non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism is beyond the scope of this article.)
