This question already has an answer here:
- Endianness at bit level 1 answer
I have a hard time understanding the use of MSB (Most significant bit) vs. LSB (Least significant bit) and why they're used at all. It is my understanding that it has to do with Endianness, but I cannot get my head around it.
Basically: If I read a specification on X and they specify that the data needs to be read LSB or MSB - ok I can do that - but why am I doing it.
Why don't we just send all data MSB?
