Abstract
The article deals with porting SIMLIB/C++ to 64bit environment. It also compares the speed of 32 and 64bit code using simple simulation benchmarks.
Annotation
This article deals with porting of SIMLIB/C++ (SIMulation LIBrary for C++) from 32-bit to 64-bit environment. SIMLIB/C++ is a freely available open source simulation software tool usable for education and research.  Main problem of porting the code was the non-portable implementation of cooperative threads (sometimes called "coroutines"), which we use for parallel process modelling.
The article contains basic performance comparison of 32-bit and 64-bit code using simple discrete and continuous simulation models. The results show we can achieve significantly better performance of simulation tools in 64-bit environment.
