2.1.8. --bigend

This option instructs the compiler to generate code for an ARM processor using big-endian memory.

ARMv6 supports two different big-endian modes:

BE8

ARMv6 Byte Invariant Addressing mode.

BE32

Legacy big-endian mode.

The selection of BE8 versus BE32 is specified at link time.

Default

The compiler assumes --littleend unless --bigend is explicitly specified.
