Could it work to type-cast the variable first into a type wider than
32 bits?

It could, if we could be sure that 64-bit wide integer types are
supported on all platforms.  I don't know if they are; does anyone

There aren't so many (elderly) systems left ... Besides, isn't the long long, a data type of at least 64 bits, defined in C, ANSI C99 to be exact? Actually, I think, it's sad that no compiler needs to follow this option!

Another option is to check whether the size of the variable is bigger than four bytes.
