Hi,

I want to "play" a little with big/little endians. I used a  TCP server/client sample from perlipc and ran one on x86 station, and one on sparc. I sent, for example 999999 from one station to the other one - and got it OK.  So I guess (and correct me) that Perl encapsulates these differences. 
How can I still go low level and "feel" the differences in big/little endians using Perl ?

Thanks

Yossi
