According to IDL Online Help, there are two versions of IDL 5.4 for
Solaris, 64-bit and 32-bit memory support. We have 64-bit
kernel (Solaris 8), but still seem to use 32-bit memory support (if I
understand correctly the contents of !version system variable). If you
have both 64-bit and 32-bit versions installed, it should be possible
to start IDl in 32-bit mode by giving option -32.
