Require or import endianness from endianness: ```javascript import endianness from 'endianness'; // Swap endianness of one 64-bit value: let bytes = 64, 9, 33, 251, 84, 68, 45, 24; endianness(bytes, 8); ``` ```javascript const endianness = require("endianness"); // Swap endianness of two 24-bit values: let bytes = new Uint8Array("00", "00", "80", "ff", "ff", "7f"); endianness(bytes, 3), ```


```javascript / Swap the byte ordering in a buffer. The buffer is modified in place. @param {!Array|!Uint8Array} bytes The bytes. @param {number} offset The byte offset. @param {number=} index The start index. Assumes 0. @param {number=} end The end index. Assumes the buffer length. @throws {Error} If the buffer length is not valid. / function endianness(bytes, offset, index=0, end=bytes.length) {} ```
