Subject: menuFtype for 64 bit integers aka. long long and unsigned long long

Hi,

I'm working on soft IOC that will need to deal with 64-bit numbers. Our Linux based instrument supports reading and writing 64 signed and unsigned values, both as scalars and as arrays.

Looking at menuFtype, there is no support for 64-bits. I would like to see "long long" and "unsigned long long" support in the menuFtype.

Are there any plans on adding support for 64-bit types to menuFtype (for 3.14.x branch)?
Are there any workarounds for this issue?

I guess this change would affect basic EPICS type handling code - not record, driver or device support code.

Best regards,
Hinko
