If you know the raw data is little-endian, you can convert it to the current local endianness (without knowing what that is) using:
Then you can use it as you would any other local variable:
Ditto, if you know the raw bytes are big-endian:
And now when your print it:
The point is that once you've done the unpack, it will have been converted to the local format and from that point on you need not consider the endianess; just use it and the code will do the right thing.
