|(data, architecture)||little-endian - A computer architecture in which, within
a given 16- or 32-bit word, bytes at lower addresses have
lower significance (the word is stored "little-end-first").
The PDP-11 and VAX families of computers and Intel
microprocessors and a lot of communications and networking
hardware are little-endian.|
The term is sometimes used to describe the ordering of units other than bytes; most often, bits within a byte.
Compare big-endian, middle-endian. See NUXI problem.
