in thread Unpacking byte stream long/quad little/big endian fields

Ahh, I hadn't noticed < and > in the pack/unpack docs. It is there in my Perl 5.14 Pocket Reference, but somewhat buried over the page in the middle of a large paragraph. They seem not to be mentioned in the 5.10 version of the reference, but poking around with perldoc indicates the endien modifiers are new in 5.10. Maybe that's why I wasn't aware of them?

Anyway, much cleaner, thank you.
