|Linux Standard Base Specification for the PPC32 Architecture 1.2|
|Prev||Chapter 2. Machine Interface||Next|
LSB-conforming applications shall use the data representation as defined in Chapter 3 of the System V Application Binary Interface PowerPC Processor Supplement.
LSB-conforming applications shall use big-endian byte ordering. LSB-conforming implementations may support little-endian applications.
In addition to the fundamental types specified in Chapter 3 of the System V Application Binary Interface PowerPC Processor Supplement, a 64 bit data type is defined here.
Table 2-1. Scalar Types
|Type||C||sizeof||Alignment (bytes)||IntelI386 Architecture|
|Integral||long long||8||8||signed double word|
|signed long long|
|unsigned long long||8||8||unsigned double word|
LSB-conforming applications shall not use the long double fundamental type.
