Here is an easy way to find this, in command line type
$ getconf LONG_BIT
getconf [-v specification] system_var
the getconf utility shall write to the standard output the value of the variable specified by the system_var operand.
So it prints the value of ‘LONG_BIT’.
Read linux manual for getconf: http://linux.die.net/man/1/getconf
