Question Endian Conversion

Hi everybody,

I met this week a problem.

For now, we used TRU64 system based on alpha. Now, we're installing UP-UX systems (on Itanium). And we have problem with our files. Indeed, we use file with COMP-3, COMP-5 data. These files are used on both platforms. (we use also TXT files which describe the files we use)

I didn't found any tool to convert the file from a format to another one...

could you help me ? It is urgent.

I have to precise something...
HP-UX is a big Endian System
TRU-64 is a little Endian System...

Thanks

Smilie

Code:
 dd conv=swab

swaps bytes in the words of files.

Don't know if this applies to your problem.
