32-bit or 64-bit: Picking the Right Squish Binary Package
Hi Squish Users!
Checkout the latest Squish Tip of the Week on our blog: 32-bit or 64-bit: Picking the Right Squish Binary Package
Sometimes we get asked what is the right Squish binary package to download?
To answer this question, we first need to find out what 32-bit and 64-bit is.
The terms 32-bit and 64-bit (the number of bits is called the word size*) refers to the information processing of the processor of a computer processor, also known as Central Processing Unit or CPU. The type of processor a computer has affects not only its overall performance but can also dictate what kind of software it uses.
32-bit versus 64-bit
As the number of bits increases, there are significant benefits. More bits means that data will be processed in larger chunks which also means more accurately as the system can point to or address a greater number of locations in physical memory. Software programs that require many calculations to function smoothly can operate faster and more efficiently.
Squish binary packages can be downloaded for both 32-bit and 64-bit computers. To get the right Squish package the word size* must match for which your application was compiled.
