Hello, I'd like to use extensions .l_i386 and .l_ia64 for Linux Pd
externals, like it is in Hans Christoph Steiner's [filterview]
project. But how does that work? In the makefile accompanying the
filterview project, Linux executable extensions are conventional

I'm looking for ways to simplify build procedures and distribution of
externals which are not in Pd-extended. At the moment, I let my
makefiles find the bitness of a Linux system and automatically copy
the executable to a directory bin/ or bin64/ according to bitness. But
the problem is, a Linux user has to remove the file of wrong bitness
so Pd can not try to load it. An executable (automatically) named with
an extension according to bitness is a great idea. But do these
extensions also work for Pd-E versions older than 0.43, and for
vanilla Pd?
