NUXI problem definition data, architecture
/nuk'see pro'bl*m/ The problem of transferring data between computers with differing byte order. The string "Unix" might look like "NUXI" on a machine with a different "byte sex" (e.g. when transferring data from a little-endian
to a big-endian
, or vice-versa).
