I was reading about unix network programming when i found about the big/little endian problem. Im working on PC(as we know Intel-based processors are little-endian), and if i need to send multi-byte numbers over a network, i have to convert them to big-endian format. My question is this, in a certain way, affects the character strings too? if im going to transmit any string, do i have to convert it in some format in order to send it over a network?
Thanks in advance
