byteorder-1.0.1: native byte-ordering of the system




byteOrder :: ByteOrderSource

Returns the native byte ordering of the system.

data ByteOrder Source

Indicates the byte-ordering for a 4-byte value, where '1' indicates the most-significant byte and '4' indicates the least significant byte.

In this format, big endian byte order would be represented as: (1,2,3,4).

For convinience, the most common cases (BigEndian and LittleEndian) are provided their own constructors.
