3.14.2.7 endian

Often the endianess of binary data in the file does not agree with the endianess used by the platform on which gnuplot is running. Several words can direct gnuplot how to arrange bytes. For example ‘endian=little‘ means treat the binary file as having byte significance from least to greatest. The options are

              little:  least significant to greatest significance
                 big:  greatest significance to least significance
             default:  assume file endianess is the same as compiler
         swap (swab):  Interchange the significance.  (If things
                       don't look right, try this.)

Gnuplot can support "middle" ("pdp") endian if it is compiled with that option.
