 3!:1, 3!:2, and 3!:3 Extended initial writing: 2000-00-00 last updated: 2004-10-26

In standard byte order, the bytes of a word are listed from most significant to least significant; in reverse byte order, the bytes are listed from least significant to most significant. For example, the 4-byte integer 265358979 is 0fd10e83 in standard byte-order and 830ed10f in reverse byte-order. The PC is a reverse byte order machine.

The dyad x 3!:1 y applies to an array y and produces its binary representation, according to the atom x:
 x word size byte order 00 32 bits standard 01 32 bits reverse 10 64 bits standard 11 64 bits reverse

The monad 3!:1 produces the binary representation in the word size and byte order of the current machine. 3!:3 produces the hexadecimal representation of an array, analoguous to 3!:1. The monad 3!:2 is the inverse of 3!:1 and 3!:3, and works on an argument in either word size and in either byte order.

The following examples were executed on a 32-bit, reverse byte order machine.
