Example 1

The following program displays whether the computer architecture is Big Endian or not (the opposite would most probably be Little Endian, but there are also other non-Big Endian architectures).
#include <iostream>
#include <codecogs/computing/lowlevel/is_big_endian.h>
using namespace std;
int main() 
  cout << "Computer architecture is ";
  if (Computing::Lowlevel::isBigEndian()) cout << "Big Endian.";
  else cout << "Little Endian (or other non-Big Endian).";
  cout << endl;
  return 0;
