BYTEORDER(3) BSD Library Functions Manual BYTEORDER(3)
htonl, htons, ntohl, ntohs -- convert values between host and network byte order
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
These routines convert 16 and 32 bit quantities between network byte order and host byte
On machines which have a byte order which is the same as the network order, these routines
are defined as macros that expand to the value of their argument.
These routines are most often used in conjunction with Internet addresses and ports as
returned by gethostbyname(3) and getservent(3).
bswap(3), gethostbyname(3), getservent(3)
The described functions conform to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
The byteorder functions appeared in 4.2BSD.
The `l' and `s' suffixes in the names are not meaningful in machines where long integers are
not 32 bits.
