Description
       All routines that swap headers take a pointer to a header structure to change the byte's sex. The destsex argument lets	the  swapsex  rou-
       tines decide whether to swap bitfields before or after swapping the words in which they occur. If destsex equals the hostsex of the machine
       you are running on, the flip happens before the swap; otherwise, the flip happens after the swap.  Although not all  routines  swap  struc-
       tures containing bitfields, the destsex is required.

       The  routine  takes  a  pointer to an aux entry and a type, which is a ST_AUX_* constant in cmplrs/stsupport.h.	The constant specifies the
       type of the aux entry to change the sex of.  All other routines are passed a pointer to an array of structures and a count of structures to
       have  the  byte	sex  changed.	The  routines and are macros declared in sex.h.  Only the include files that describe the structures being
       swapped have to be included.
