[Numpy-discussion] Native byteorder representation
Fri Feb 2 06:57:53 CST 2007
We have been bitten by a small glitch related with the representation of
native byteorders. Here is an example exposing the problem:
[the example was run on a little endian machine]
We thought that native byteorder were represented always by a '=', and this is
true when you create the type from scratch. But, if you create a dtype with a
different byteorder and then switch to a native one (in this case, 'little')
the representation of the byteorder changes to '<' instead of '='.
We can live with this, but IMO it would be better if the final representation
of native byteorders could always be made to read '='.
