[Biococoa-dev] Reading binary files on intel machine

Hi guys,

Someone reported that he couldn't read a DNA strider file with  
EnzymeX on his macbook, does any of you guys have an intel based mac  
or the possibility to test the standalone reader on such a machine.  
My gut feeling says I have to add some code to do some byte swapping  
(which I din't) and that's the reason reading binary files (strider/ 
gck) fails using the current code...

Windows is a 32-bit patch to a 16-bit shell for an 8-bit
operating system, written for a 4-bit processor by a 2-
bit company without 1 bit of sense.
