Thank you,

I guess I should convert double to uint64_t instead of int64_t...

The reason why I asked is because bit64 package `bit64::as.integer64(2^63)` produces different results on my machine vs. another server. This package converts double to int64_t directly. Looks like this is a bug in their package.
