The byte ordering convention of data that is represented with multiple bytes. Big-endian is an order in which the “big end” (most significant value in the sequence) is stored first (at the lowest storage address). Little-endian is an order in which the “little end” (least significant value in the sequence) is stored first. For example, in a big-endian computer, the number 256 is indicated as 0x01 0x00. In a little-endian computer, the number 256 is indicated as 0x00 0x01.
