Binary File Conversion: Big Endian to Small Endian

Utility to Convert Binary Files from Big Endian to Small Endian

Most of the EGM2008-derived products have been created on a computer that employs Big Endian internal binary representation. To accommodate users who wish to use these products on computers that employ Small Endian binary representation, we provide the FORTRAN program "make_SE.f" below, which may be used to convert sequential binary files containing words that are 4-bytes long, from Big Endian to Small Endian representation. Before using any of the files and programs on this web page, please read the disclaimer.
