I put online some of the gems of wisdom I've found dealing with big-endian
and little-endian issues:
The vast bulk of it came from the PCI mailing list.
Thanks everyone !
(If anyone sends me the twisted details of their particular OS /
communications interface, I'd be glad to add it to the FAQ. It already says
that all Intel x86 CPUs and the OSes that run on them are little-endian. I
would like list the endian details of OSes that run on bi-endian CPUs like
the PowerPC. It already says that RS-232 transmits the LSB first -- i.e.,
it is little-endian. I would like to list the endian-ness of other
interfaces such as Fire-Wire, USB, SCI, ACCESS.bus, etc.
