[Feature request] new file extension for double-precision externals. #902
There is some discussion on #900 about how to implement FAT externals (single binaries that can work on single and double precision). While this can be cool for advanced developers I think there should also be a special file extension for double-precision externals so that existing and unmaintained libraries can be compiled for Pd-double without any or very few code modifications.
There are some suggestions like
Since Pd-double is something many of us are interested and is almost ready, there should be an easy way for us to compile existing code and use it. It could become hard if we have to insert something into many .c files.
Also it can be a nice option for active developers to simply supply non-FAT binaries.
esp. since most likely there are externals that cannot be compiled as PHAT-binaries (shared internal functions that deal with
