dear all,

i am executing 32-bit x86 binary on x86_64 machine,
does it need to do some action like switch mode between x86 and x86_64 ??
if so, how does it perform??

Both Windows and linux support running 32-bit applications under 64-bit OS, with the CPU mode bit reset. This appears to introduce additional opportunities for exploits.
