In some cases, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of MATLAB can run on the same platform. In this case, the value returned by computer reflects which of these are running. For example, if you run a 32-bit version of MATLAB on a Windows® x64 platform, computer returns PCWIN, indicating that the 32-bit version is running. You can get this information and the value of archstr from the Help menu, as described in Information About your Installation.
