We have an application developed for Sparc Solaris 8. We are thinking of expanding its domain on Intel processor too. I am looking for the guidelines for porting my application from Sparc Solaris to Intel Solaris and are there known issues to be taken into consideration? What I am really worried about is something like endianness (or data alignment and other such issue which I might not even be aware of), which is different on Sparc Solaris then on Intel Solaris. What effect does endianness has on something like socket programming. Since endianness of bytes received from network on Sparc Solaris doesn’t has to be changed to use, but endianness of the bytes received from network on Intel Solaris has to be changed. Really appreciate a quick response on this.
