I think you mean 01 not 10. 01 is bin for 2.

    No, 10 is binary for 2.

    Think about this for a second... If 01 was binary for 2, then 00 would be binary for 1 and then what would zero be?

      0000 = 0
      1000 = 1
      0100 = 2
      1100 = 3
      0010 = 4

      Now lets not get into a endian war, I knew someone would bite. =)


      edited: oops mistyped the bits for 4.
