Hi Prashant,
What exactly do you mean?  With a 64-bit compile, an unsigned long
variable is going to be 64-bits wide.  As far as I know, there is no
way to change that.  sizeof(long) == sizeof(void *) has to be true. 
To use a 32-bit wide (unsigned) variable, use the unsigned int type. 
For example:
typedef unsigned int u32type;
"u32type" can be whatever you want to call your unsigned 32-bit data
type.  If this code has to work for both 32- and 64-bit environments,
then you should use some #if statements to determine which typedef to
use.  Is this what you wanted to know, or are you asking something
different?
