Has this been fixed in 5.6.1?

	Hallo,

   I have looked on the endianity at perlfunc manpage again, now on perl
v5.6.1, GNU/Linux Debian Woody. The text has changed, but is still
buggy.

   There is
	For example ... 0x12345678 ...

		0x12 0x34 0x56 0x78	# little-endian
		0x78 0x56 0x34 0x12	# big-endian

But this should be swapped. The rest is OK. I have run the test from the
manpage, and it makes me sure, that 0x78 0x56... is little endian on my
Intel Penitium II.

	Thanks
						Hans
