The be16enc(), be16dec(), be32enc(), be32dec(), be64enc(), be64dec(), le16enc(), le16dec(), le32enc(), le32dec(), le64enc(), and le64dec() functions encode and decode integers to/from byte strings on any alignment in big/little endian format.

byteorder(3)

The encode/decode functions first appeared in FreeBSD 5.1.
