Machine bit representations
Tue, 24 Jul 2001 16:51:54 -0700
Is it possible in Haskell to access the underlying machine bit representation of a Float or Double value?
I need to be able to be able to send this bit representation as a list of bytes in network byte order to a process running on a different platform (with a different host byte order to my platform).
For reference, I run Haskell under Linux on Intel. The processes I want to communicate with run under Sun Solaris, Hitachi HPUX and Java everywhere.
Any suggestions, for any Haskell translator much appreciated.
