I'm writing a C program that should work on a variety of processors, and it
needs to know whether the processor is big- or little-endian. I know this is
done in configure, but I have no idea how to write a configure script. How do I
It also has to have structure members that are always 2 bytes, regardless of
the processor. Someone told me __int16, but neither gcc nor egcs knows what
that is. How do I do it?
