Unnecessary empty line, only one is sufficient. I also don't see a reason
to even define this value. If it's a constant then use a const type.

You're assuming that unsigned long is 64-bits here. You need to use a
type which matches your expections regardless of the architecture that
the code is built on.

This makes an assumption not only about the size of the "unsigned long"
type, but also of the endianness of the architecture this runs on.
Please recode this to remove both assumptions.
