Questions about 64 Bit PHP on both Windows and Linux

First off how can I tell if my local and live servers are running 32 or 64 bit versions of PHP?

Secondly I'm running XP 64 bit so I presume I can run 64 bit versions of PHP, are they available?

By running 64 bit versions of PHP will I be able to resolve the Unix epoch issue with integers or is there a work-around with 32 bit versions of PHP?

I have never try this, but for what I have read the main issue might be on the PHP extensions. Also about the integer issue I found this article that one of the best out there:

I don't use frameworks and probably never will...as far as PHP extensions I use them very rarely and have yet to implement them in to live production environments with the exception of cURL in an older project. It's pretty clear that one shouldn't use floats in place of integers at least. Thanks for sharing.

For the first one, see the $_ENV super global what it contains.
