binary-output constant-numeric-expression


Provides default byte-ordering for the "%b" format item. OmniMark selects byte-ordering instructions in the following order:

  1. The numeric format modifier given in the "%b" item.
  2. The value specified in the binary open modifier applied to the stream in which "%b" is being written.
  3. The value specified in the binary-output declaration.
  4. Zero (0).

The binary-output declaration can appear anywhere in a program, any number of times. When more than one is included, the same value must be specified for each. If all of the binary-output declarations occur before the first rule or function definition, they must all specify zero (0).
