You can specify endianness in bit syntax patterns. Or did you mean
something else?

 From the reference manual, on the Endianness type specifier:

"Endianness = big | little | native
Native-endian means that the endian will be resolved at load time to be  
either big-endian or little-endian, depending on what is native for the  
CPU that the Erlang machine is run on. The default is big."
