15 // Bswapcpy //
16 // //
17 // Initial version: Apr 22, 2000 //
18 // //
19 // A set of inline byte swapping routines for arrays. //
20 // //
21 // The bswapcpy16() and bswapcpy32() routines are used for packing //
22 // arrays of basic types into a buffer in a byte swapped order. Use //
23 // of asm and the `bswap' opcode (available on i486 and up) reduces //
24 // byte swapping overhead on linux. //
25 // //
26 // Use of routines is similar to that of memcpy. //
27 // //
28 // ATTENTION: //
29 // //
30 // n - is a number of array elements to be copied and byteswapped. //
31 // (It is not the number of bytes!) //
32 // //
33 // For arrays of short type (2 bytes in size) use bswapcpy16(). //
34 // For arrays of of 4-byte types (int, float) use bswapcpy32(). //
35 // //
