ParaView uses legacy readers which are big endian
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Since nearly all modern computers are little endian, it is unfortunate that the legacy binary readers/writers always use big endian format. ParaView uses this format for transferring data, so this causes byte-swapping on the sending and receiving end. It would be better if the data could be sent in little endian format, or the user could choose whether to send in little or big endian format.
