HDF5 question about endianness...

Howdy all!

I have a HDF5 question.

I see that the function H5Tget_order can tell me if a type is big or
little endian.

But is there a way to tell if a type is native endian for that
machine?

What is H5Tget_native_type all about? Is this it's purpose? To tell me
if a type is native?

They I could use H5Tget_order to find if something is big or little
endian, and then somehow get_native_type to tell whether this is the
native endianness for the machine?

Is that it?

Thanks!

Ed
