RE: bug in lrint [was: FW: Printing long int in C program under cygwin64]

Further to my first question, I also tried llrint() as below. It gives the same output as lrint(). This may not be a big surprise as long long int and long int have the same length.

#include <stdio.h>      /* printf */
#include <math.h>       /* lrint, llrint, rint */

int main ()
  char text[64];
  printf ( "type cast -1 = %li\n", (long int)-1 );
  printf ( "type cast lrint(-1.0) = %li\n", (long int)lrint(-1.0) );
  printf ( "rint(-1.0) = %f\n", rint(-1.0) );
  printf ( "lrint(-1.0) = %li\n", lrint(-1.0) );
  printf ( "llrint(-1.0) = %lli\n", llrint(-1.0) );
  printf ( "lrint(1.0) = %li\n", lrint(1.0) );
  printf ( "llrint(1.0) = %lli\n", llrint(1.0) );
  sprintf( text,"int -1 = %i", -1 );
  printf ( "Via sprintf: %s\n", text);
  printf ( "size of long long int: %zi\n", sizeof(long long int));
  printf ( "size of long int: %zi\n", sizeof(long int));
  printf ( "size of int: %zi\n", sizeof(int));
  return 0;

compiled by
gcc -Wall lrint_test.c -o lrint_test.exe

type cast -1 = -1
type cast lrint(-1.0) = 4294967295
rint(-1.0) = -1.000000
lrint(-1.0) = 4294967295
llrint(-1.0) = 4294967295
lrint(1.0) = 1
llrint(1.0) = 1
Via sprintf: int -1 = -1
size of long long int: 8
size of long int: 8
size of int: 4

Is fistpq right on 32-bit, or is this a case where we need different assembly for 32-bit (fistpl) vs. 64-bit (fistql) to match the size of long that we are converting to?
