Converts the endianness of a value from Little-endian to that used by the Host.


In the Julia programming language, the function ltoh(x) is used to convert the endianness of a value from little-endian to that used by the host. Here are some examples of how this function can be used:

  1. Convert a single value:

    julia> value = 12345678;
    julia> ltoh(value)

    This example converts the value 12345678 from little-endian to the endianness used by the host.

  2. Convert an array of values:

    julia> values = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    julia> ltoh.(values)
    5-element Array{Int64,1}:

    Here, the ltoh function is applied to each element of the array values, converting them from little-endian to the host endianness.

  3. Handle edge cases with negative values:
    julia> value = -12345;
    julia> ltoh(value)

    The ltoh function can also handle negative values and convert their endianness correctly.

Common mistake example:

julia> value = "hello";
julia> ltoh(value)
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching ltoh(::String)

In this example, the ltoh function is applied to a string value, which is not supported. The ltoh function is specifically designed to convert endianness and should be used with numeric types. Make sure to provide a compatible numeric value to the ltoh function.
