System Endianness

Description

Tests system endianness. Intel and AMD based systems are little endian, and so this function will likely return FALSE. The qs package is not capable of transferring data between systems of different endianness. This should not matter for the large majority of use cases.

Usage

is_big_endian()

Value

TRUE if big endian, FALSE if little endian.

Examples

is_big_endian() # returns FALSE on Intel/AMD systems
