oid size on 64 bit machine

P: n/a
Do I get more oids on a 64 bit machine? That is, is it also an unsigned
four-byte integer on a 64 bit machine?

Until later, Geoffrey

No.


Nor will OIDs ever be 64 bit, I'd hazard to guess.

In any case using OIDs in applications is a bad idea -- you probably
should not be using them at all, let alone using more than 2^32 of them.
