  • I think I found an error.. The text says “A binary number can be either big-endian, where the most-significant digit is the left-most, or little-endian which we’ll use in this tutorial (and you’ll usually see binary numbers written this way).”

    In your examples, and typical representation of binary, the left-most digits are most significant (128,64…2,1) but you say you’re using little endian in this tutorial, which doesn’t seem to be correct..

    • This got me confused too. It does seem to be little-endian though, with the LSB in the largest memory address and the MSB in the smallest memory address. Clarifications will be helpful. Thanks!

  • Cool overview of binary!
