    if ( FLOAT_WORD_ORDER === 'little-endian' ) {
        console.log( 'Least significant word comes first...' );
    } else if ( FLOAT_WORD_ORDER === 'big-endian' ) {
        console.log( 'Most significant word comes first...' );

    C APIs

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/os-float-word-order

    Usage

    #include "stdlib/os/float_word_order.h"

    STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER

    Macro which equals either __FLOAT_WORD_ORDER__ (host defined) or STDLIB_OS_BYTE_ORDER.

    #include "stdlib/os/byte_order.h"
    
    #if defined(STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER)
    
    #if STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER == STDLIB_OS_ORDER_LITTLE_ENDIAN
    
    // Do something for little-endian...
    
    #elif STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER == STDLIB_OS_ORDER_BIG_ENDIAN
    
    // Do something for big-endian...
    
    #endif
    
    #endif

    If compiled on an unrecognized/unsupported platform, the macro is not defined.

    Examples

    #include "stdlib/os/float_word_order.h"
    #include "stdlib/os/byte_order.h"
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main() {
    #if defined(STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER)
    #if STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER == STDLIB_OS_ORDER_LITTLE_ENDIAN
        printf( "Least significant word comes first...\n" );
    #elif STDLIB_OS_FLOAT_WORD_ORDER == STDLIB_OS_ORDER_BIG_ENDIAN
        printf( "Most significant word comes first...\n" );
    #else
        printf( "Platform float word order is unknown...\n" )
    #endif
    #endif
    }
