Endianness

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Apparently Endianness comes from Guilliver’s Travels.

Furthermore, apparently its shocking that I did not know this. Doubly so since I read (most of) the book 15 years ago.

This will make it easier for me to keep straight that big endian means big end first, which is something I had trouble remembering until recently.
