Byte Transformations

These transformations only apply to the least significant byte, regardless of the endianness.

Name Operation
Add byte + 128
Subtract 128 - byte
Negate -byte

Byte Order

Also known as Endianness.

Name Order
Big 4, 3, 2, 1
Little 1, 2, 3, 4
Middle 3, 4, 1, 2
Reversed Middle 2, 1, 4, 3

Middle endianness only applies to DWords.
