[Solved] AIX server is compiling executables to 32-bits by default, how to change it?

Hi everyone:

I have a server running AIX 6.1, I've upgraded the TL from 6100-0100 to 6100-04-02-1007, however since then all the executables I compile are 32-bit mode by default, how can I solve this?

I'm using VisualAge C/C++ 10.0

thanks in advance

AIX 6 is a 64 bit operating system, it does not compile executables.
What compiler are you using - type, name and version?
You may have more luck on a forum associated with your compiler but please post back here and we'll see if we can help.

You're right, I'm going to edit my question.

Solved

By default VisualAge compiles applications to 32-bit mode, if compilation to 64-bit mode is desired the OBJECT_MODE environment variable must be set to 64 before
