I think Int64 is a programming type - to differentiate it from the usual
32-bit Integer. It is a pretty standard term which I have encountered in
several other manuals.

But note also, that Int64 does not appear in the New keywords (page 25,
Getting started), so it is pretty clear that Int64 is not an Interbase term.
