_byteswap_uint64, _byteswap_ulong, _byteswap_ushort

Reverse the order of bytes in an integer.

unsigned short _byteswap_ushort (
   unsigned short val
);
unsigned long _byteswap_ulong (
   unsigned long val
);
unsigned __int64 _byteswap_uint64 (
   unsigned __int64 val
);

Parameter

val
The integer to reverse byte order.

Requirements

Routine Required header Compatibility
_byteswap_ushort <stdlib.h> Win 98, Win Me, Win NT, Win 2000, Win XP
_byteswap_ulong <stdlib.h> Win 98, Win Me, Win NT, Win 2000, Win XP
_byteswap_uint64 <stdlib.h> Win 98, Win Me, Win NT, Win 2000, Win XP

For additional compatibility information, see Compatibility in the Introduction.

Libraries

All versions of the C run-time libraries.

Example

// crt_byteswap.c
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
{
   unsigned __int64 u64 = 0x0102030405060708;
   unsigned long ul = 0x01020304;
   
   printf("byteswap of %I64x = %I64x\n", u64, _byteswap_uint64(u64));
   printf("byteswap of %Ix = %Ix", ul, _byteswap_ulong(ul));
}

Output

byteswap of 102030405060708 = 807060504030201
byteswap of 1020304 = 4030201
