in thread Ascending vs descending bit order

Careful, nothing to do with big vs little endian which are byte order variations, as opposed to the pack formats which differ in the bit order. Observe:
$ perl -le'print ord pack "B*", "00000001"' 1 $ perl -le'print ord pack "b*", "00000001"' 128

Makeshifts last the longest.
