byte and bit order question
i am just learning about the stuff on byte/bit order and got a question.
following my pervious post, someone gave me a example of what +1. and -1. looks like in memroy in the little endian format
For instance (little endian), in memory - negative 1.0 looks like:
00 00 80 BF
while positive 1.0 looks like:
00 00 80 3F
ok, now, BF in binary is 10111111 and 3F is 00111111
am i correct that the sign bit in this case is the left most bit in the right most byte? if yes, am i correct that the byte order in this case is in little endian and the bit order in each bit is in big endian? this is very confusing to me, any good reference on the net that can help me understand this better?
