The endian form that the node uses to interpret the binary file. Byte order, or endian form, indicates whether integers are represented in memory from most-significant byte to least-significant byte or vice versa. When reading a binary file, you must interpret the data in the same byte order in which the data was written.
|big-endian, network order
The most-significant byte occupies the lowest memory address. This endian form is used on PowerPC platforms such as VxWorks. This endian-form also is used when reading data written on a different platform.
|native, host order
Uses the byte-ordering format of the host computer. This endian form increases read and write speed.
The least-significant byte occupies the lowest memory address. This endian form is used on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
Default: 0 big-endian, network order
