My program which uses DOWRDLONG works well in win32. But it could not compile in Solaris  with GCC.

This program is an ANCI C++ program.

I found the following code in Win32 Head file:

typedef unsigned __int64  DWORDLONG;

Now, what is the data type of DWORDLONG in Solaris?

some codes in my program

typedef unsigned __int64  DWORDLONG;

...
DWORDLONG dwl=1;
dwl<<=32;

...
return;
//OK in win32 with Borland C++5.5 but produced errors when attempted to compile with gcc in Solaris :(

Do you mean "typedef unsigned long long  DWORDLONG"

But it could not works in win32, borland c++. Can it work in Solaris?

Yes. It does not work in Win32 (since there is no such type defined), but in Solaris, I have checked yes.
