For example, [f.sub.c] is an inverse function for the PNG specification because the checksum field is stored in big endian format in a PNG file, but it should be reversed to the little endian format in the memory before the comparison.

For the IBM Power Little Endian architecture, this release enables support for the High Availability and Resilient Storage Add-Ons as well as the Open Container Initiative (OCI) runtime and image format.
“Oscilloscope and Power Spectral applications include options for displaying all signaling formats - a-law, [micro]-law, PCM 16 bit, PCM 13 bit, PCM 14 bit, PCM 8 bit and different byte order for INTEL (Little Endian) and MOTOROLA (Big Endian) 16 bit signals sampled at 16 KHz can also be displayed.”
Little Bit Timmy was a big supporter of little endian because that would give him the best position in the word.
But it has to be said that in Lilliput, His Imperial Highness, the Little Endian heir to the throne, "has some tendency towards the high heel".
Binary numerics and multi-byte character data from "big endian" computers do not process correctly on "little endian" computers, and vice versa, due to the byte ordering differences imposed by CPU architectures.

(2) For example, the 2029's front-panel software supports four types of files: an IFR proprietary format with a *.iq extension, the ESG binary format used by Agilent Technologies, the 16-b and the 32-b Little Endian formats, and the 32-b IEEE floating-point notation.
The N4000, codenamed Prelude uses 360MHz or 440MHz PA-8500 RISCs, but its key technology is a chipset enabling users to upgrade to IA-64 processors - big-endian or little endian to run HP-UX or Windows NT respectively - by swapping out CPU board and bus converter.
