My understanding of Endianness.

I am not sure if I understand in completely!

I will use quite a few resources for this one:

And a resource that confused me really:

Some basic knowledge first:
  • A bit has two possible values. (1 or 0).
  • A byte is a sequence of 8 bits.
  • The leftmost bit in a byte is the biggest. A byte is big - endian! 
The Problem:
  • Problems happen when computers try to read multiple bytes.
How Things Work:
  • Big Endian Machine: When looking at multiple bytes, the first byte is the biggest.
  • Little Endian Machine: When looking at multiple bytes, the last byte is the biggest.
