[PD] Some confusion about linux amd64-64 and linux amd64-32 in deken, and what are all the possible variations?

if I'm not mistaken the appending 32 or 64 is for 32 or 64 bit Pd, that is,
the application.

the first part is the cchp architecture.

I welcome and support your efforts, but I'll make the remark again that I
hope you could bring much of what what you're planning to puredata.info for
a more centralized online resource, and we can also add things to the
manual. This section already describes the binary types, we can maybe
improve it => http://msp.ucsd.edu/Pd_documentation/x4.htm#s1.2.1
