       Since glibc 2.19:
       In glibc up to and including 2.19:


   These functions convert the byte encoding of integer  values  from  the
   byte  order that the current CPU (the "host") uses, to and from little-
   endian and big-endian byte order.

   The number, nn, in the name of each  function  indicates  the  size  of
   integer handled by the function, either 16, 32, or 64 bits.

   The  functions  with names of the form "htobenn" convert from host byte
   order to big-endian order.

   The functions with names of the form "htolenn" convert from  host  byte
   order to little-endian order.

   The  functions with names of the form "benntoh" convert from big-endian
   order to host byte order.

   The functions with names of the form  "lenntoh"  convert  from  little-
   endian order to host byte order.


   These functions were added to glibc in version 2.9.


   These  functions are nonstandard.  Similar functions are present on the
   BSDs, where the required  header  file  is  <sys/endian.h>  instead  of
   <endian.h>.  Unfortunately, NetBSD, FreeBSD, and glibc haven't followed
   the original OpenBSD naming convention for these functions, whereby the
   nn  component always appears at the end of the function name (thus, for
   example, in NetBSD, FreeBSD, and  glibc,  the  equivalent  of  OpenBSDs
   "betoh32" is "be32toh").


   These  functions  are  similar  to  the  older  byteorder(3)  family of
   functions.  For example, be32toh() is identical to ntohl().

   The advantage of the byteorder(3) functions is that they  are  standard
   functions  available  on all UNIX systems.  On the other hand, the fact
   that they were designed for use in the context  of  TCP/IP  means  that
   they lack the 64-bit and little-endian variants described in this page.


   The  program  below  display  the results of converting an integer from
   host byte order to both little-endian and big-endian byte order.  Since
   host  byte  order  is  either  little-endian or big-endian, only one of
   these conversions will have an effect.  When we run this program  on  a
   little-endian system such as x86-32, we see the following:

       $ ./a.out
       x.u32 = 0x44332211
       htole32(x.u32) = 0x44332211
       htobe32(x.u32) = 0x11223344

           uint32_t u32;
           uint8_t arr[4];
       } x;

       x.arr[0] = 0x11;     /* Lowest-address byte */
       x.arr[1] = 0x22;
       x.arr[2] = 0x33;
       x.arr[3] = 0x44;     /* Highest-address byte */

       printf("x.u32 = 0x%x\n", x.u32);
       printf("htole32(x.u32) = 0x%x\n", htole32(x.u32));
       printf("htobe32(x.u32) = 0x%x\n", htobe32(x.u32));
