Byte Order

Also known as Big-Endian. Which means the most significant byte comes first in storage. Sparc and Motorola 68k based chips are MSB ordered. (SDL defines this as SDL_BYTEORDER==SDL_BIG_ENDIAN)

Little-Endian(LSB) is stored in the opposite order, with the least significant byte first in memory. Intel and AMD are two LSB machines. (SDL defines this as SDL_BYTEORDER==SDL_LIL_ENDIAN)
