I routinely use cpio to archive data from an Intel platform running
transfer the floppy archives to a Solaris x86 machine. Today I tried to
transfer the same cpio floppy record to a SPARC with the same method,
got an error indicating that the SPARC did not recognize the cpio
this a big vs. little endian problem? Is there any way I can reliably
transfer a NeXt cpio diskette archive to a SPARC?
