How can we check that a particular installer for a software(any XXXX.bin installer)is a 32-bit or a 64-bit installer ??
Like "uname -a" will give OS related details, so how can we check the same thing for any installer in Linux ??
Thank you for the reply. But i think you don't get my point right...let me explain it in detail for you...
I am having Genespring.exe and Genespring.bin installers for windows and linux machines respec. I can install the software on windows without any problem, but on linux i got error that few libraries are missing. I want to check whether it is a 32-bit or a 64-bit installer for linux ???
Hope that now I am a bit clear...
Thank You again,

Read the README file that came with the package if there is one.
Check the web site where you download the package.
Ask the author of the package.
Try to execute it.
Anyway, usually you should avoid the XXX.bin installers and use your package manager instead.
