Is there an scm command that will show whether I am using the 32 or 64 bit version of the SCM tools

Is there any scm  command that will show whether or not the version of scm that I have installed is 64 or 32 bit?
I'm using Linux so I have a couple workarounds but it would be nice to find out on Windows as well.

scm -v for 32 & 64 bit versions both return, version 3.1.200.v20120924_1445

ls -l shows different size for scm
64 bit:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 71162 2011-02-02 08:58 scm
32 bit
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 63001 2013-02-15 02:43 scm

And I can use "file" command.
file scm
 ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1
 ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1

I'm not sure... you can see the version of the launcher in the scm.ini file in the eclipse directory:

Good point, and there seem to be more 64 bit jar files with the 64 bit version of scm

64 bit scm$ lsĀ  plugins/ |grep _64

32 bit scm$ ls plugins/ |grep _64
