Little or Big Endian


#1

I have heard that some ARM processors can switch between little or big endian in boot time, so which is the activated mode in 2501B? Any ideas or any experience?

[size=75]P.S. I am a fan of little endian architecture because when you use big endian and make a typecast (in assembler), you must change the pointer in memory.[/size]

You have heard correctly!

That is a very good question, and something which obviously should be clearly documented, shouldn’t it?

Unfortunately, this is Wavecom - and it isn’t. :angry:

My guess is that Open-AT is Little-Endian - see:

But, again, this is basic information that needs to be clearly documented - we should not have to guess! :angry: :angry:
