std.system.Endian/endian - multiple declarations

Variable endian

The endianness that the program was compiled for.

immutable(Endian) endian = Endian.littleEndian;

Enum Endian

Byte order endianness.

enum Endian : int { ... }

Enum members

bigEndian Big endian byte order
littleEndian Little endian byte order


This is intended for cases where you need to deal with endianness at runtime. If you're doing something which should compile differently depending on whether you're compiling on a big endian or little endian machine, then please use version (BigEndian) and version (LittleEndian).
