Just a correction:

This argument is not correct, as Jörg kindly pointed out:
.rsc-Files are written and read via the File interface, and
this interface defines a specific endianness (little-endian)
for 32-bit words. So the only conversion takes place when
reading/writing these values from/to memory, which is
automatically done in the correct endianness of the machine
doing the operation.
