( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The following code is meant for a Big-endian processor running linux. The code reads binary files and assigns values to C-structures. The same data files need to be read in perl in Windows on little endian x86. Any tips on doing the translation?
typedef struct s_str_boo { unsigned short type; int x; int y; int w; int h; int v2; unsigned short s1; unsigned short s2; } str_boo; typedef struct s_str_foo { unsigned int aui; str_boo boo[16]; unsigned short aus; struct s_str_foo *next; } str_foo; file = fopen("foo.dat", "r+b"); fread((void*)&an_uint, sizeof(char), sizeof(unsigned int), file); fread((void*)tmpfoo, sizeof(char), sizeof(str_foo), file);

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
