That is a 64-bit Perl. The important %Config value to look at is
ptrsize. If it is set to 8, then you have a full 64-bit Perl. If the
ivtype is set to a type that is 8 bytes, but ptrsize is 4, then you have
a 32-bit Perl with 64-bit integers (which from the OS point of view is a
32-bit process).

Cheers,
