I'd like to know where that is.

I believe that since the x86 is a little-endian machine, you actually
want 0x44332211, for the example above, since in 0x44332211, the LSB
will be written "first". I am not near a machine to test this on,

It's pretty easy to test, so, as always, the ultimate truth is in what
happens when you do it.

I hope to be back to life by monday. I just moved to Livermore, CA and
am busy ...
