The minutes say they have decided to leave endianness unspecified in ES6. I think what you have done below is better.The ECMAScript committee recently reversed an earlier decision to specify the typed array views (like Uint16Array and Float32Array, but not DataView) as operating on little-endian data: https://github.com/rwldrn/tc39-notes/blob/master/es6/2013-05/may-21.md
Excellent. Couldn't be clearer.Since their inception, the intent of these view types has been to work with the host processor's endianness, but until now this has not been specified. The typed array editor's draft has now been updated to specify this behavior: http://www.khronos.org/registry/typedarray/specs/latest/#2.1 http://www.khronos.org/registry/typedarray/specs/latest/#7 http://www.khronos.org/registry/typedarray/specs/latest/#8 Please send any feedback on these changes to the list.
