byteorder(3) [linux man page]

BYTEORDER(3)						     Linux Programmer's Manual						      BYTEORDER(3)

NAME
htonl, htons, ntohl, ntohs - convert values between host and network byte order SYNOPSIS
#include <arpa/inet.h> uint32_t htonl(uint32_t hostlong); uint16_t htons(uint16_t hostshort); uint32_t ntohl(uint32_t netlong); uint16_t ntohs(uint16_t netshort); DESCRIPTION
The htonl() function converts the unsigned integer hostlong from host byte order to network byte order. The htons() function converts the unsigned short integer hostshort from host byte order to network byte order. The ntohl() function converts the unsigned integer netlong from network byte order to host byte order. The ntohs() function converts the unsigned short integer netshort from network byte order to host byte order. On the i386 the host byte order is Least Significant Byte first, whereas the network byte order, as used on the Internet, is Most Signifi- cant Byte first. CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001. Some systems require the inclusion of <netinet/in.h> instead of <arpa/inet.h>. SEE ALSO
endian(3), gethostbyname(3), getservent(3) COLOPHON

Formatting values in byte

Hello Does a command already exist for formatting numbers in byte for example? Just thought I would ask if there is a function for it or if I should write one myself, don't want to reinvent the wheel. Example: 10 = 10 B 1234 = 1.234 kB 1500000 = 1.5 MB Thanks by advance (1 Reply)
