sputl, sgetl - access long integer data in a machine-independent fash-
void sputl(value, buffer)
sputl() takes the four bytes of the long integer values and places them
in memory starting at the address pointed to by buffer. The ordering
of the bytes is the same across all machines.
sgetl() retrieves the four bytes in memory starting at the address
pointed to by buffer and returns the long integer value in the byte
ordering of the host machine.
The combination of sputl() and sgetl() provides a machine-independent
way of storing long numeric data in a file in binary form without con-
version to characters.
