uint16_unpack_big(3) read an unsigned big-endian 16-bit integer


#include <uint16.h>

uint16 u;

void uint16_unpack_big(const char s[2],uint16 *u);


uint16 is a 16-bit unsigned integer type, normally either unsigned int or unsigned long.

uint16_unpack_big portably reads a uint16 as stored on a big-endian architecture (i.e. in network byte order) from s and writes it into u in the native byte order.
