SYNOPSIS

       int     beieeeftoa64(char *a, uint n, void *f)
       int     beieeeftoa80(char *a, uint n, void *f)

       u16int  beload2(uchar *p)
       u32int  beload4(uchar *p)

       u16int  leload2(uchar *p)
       u32int  leload4(uchar *p)
       u64int  leload8(uchar *p)

       int     ieeeftoa32(char *a, uint	n, u32int u)
       int     ieeeftoa64(char *a, uint	n, u32int hi, u32int lo)

DESCRIPTION
       These functions provide machine-independent access to data in a partic-
       ular byte order.

       Beswap2,	 beswap4,  and	beswap8	 return	the 2-byte, 4-byte, and	8-byte
       big-endian representation of the	bytes in val, respectively.

       Beload2,	beload4, and beload8 return the	 2-byte,  4-byte,  and	8-byte
       big-endian interpretation of the	bytes at p, respectively.

       Beieeeftoa32,  beieeeftoa64,  and  beieeeftoa80	format	the big-endian
       4-byte, 8-byte, or 10-byte IEEE floating-point value at f into  the  n-
       byte string buffer a.

       Leswap2,	 leswap4,  etc.	 are the little-endian equivalents of the rou-
       tines just described.

       Ieeeftoa32 and ieeeftoa64 format	a local	machine	 byte-order  floating-
       point  value  into  the	n-byte	string buffer a.  Ieeeftoa32 expects a
       32-bit floating-point value stored in the bits of  u.   Ieeeftoa64  ex-
       pects  a	 64-bit	 floating-point	value whose high 32-bits are in	hi and
       low 32-bits are in lo.
