Integer, ByteArray, and Endianness

darth-cheney
Hi all,

I am working on a bytecode-level project and came across ByteArray >> #asInteger, whose comment indicates that it will use the big-endian format. Is it the case the multibyte Integers (or other values?) are big-endian in Squeak? If so, what strategies do people use when trying to reconstruct byte-level structures?

Thanks!

Check out the "platform independent access" protocol of ByteArray.
