DESCRIPTION
     The bswap16(), bswap32(), and bswap64() functions return a byte order
     swapped integer.  On big endian systems, the number is converted to
     little endian byte order.  On little endian systems, the number is
     converted to big endian byte order.

     The be16toh(), be32toh(), and be64toh() functions return a big endian
     byte ordered integer converted to the system's native byte order.  The
     return value will be the same as the argument on big endian systems.

     The le16toh(), le32toh(), and le64toh() functions return a little endian
     byte ordered integer converted to the system's native byte order.  The
     return value will be the same as the argument on little endian systems.

     The htobe16(), htobe32(), and htobe64() functions return an integer in
     the system's native byte order converted to big endian byte order.  The
     return value will be the same as the argument on big endian systems.

     The htole16(), htole32(), and htole64() functions return an integer in
     the system's native byte order converted to little endian byte order.
     The return value will be the same as the argument on little endian
     systems.

     The be16enc(), be16dec(), be32enc(), be32dec(), be64enc(), be64dec(),
     le16enc(), le16dec(), le32enc(), le32dec(), le64enc(), and le64dec()
     functions encode and decode integers to/from octet stream on any
     alignment in big/little endian format.

HISTORY
     The hto*() and *toh() functions first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.  These were
     later ported to FreeBSD 5.0.  These functions were originally introduced
     to handle PCI bus master devices that (via DMA) transfer little endian
     data even on big endian systems.

     The encode/decode functions first appeared in FreeBSD 5.1.  These were
     later ported to NetBSD 3.0 as a part of the uuidgen(2) support.

NetBSD 7.1.2                      May 5, 2010                     NetBSD 7.1.2
