Oops typo, I meant to say Little Endian
I compiled the binary using standard Luac on PC using Visual Studio 2008. Then ran that on PC target Simulator again using VS2008, so it should have worked fine unless the bytecode compiler does something silly like encode the absolute address of the print function within the binary, but I am pretty sure it wouldnt encode in that manner. I must be missing some other subtlety
I believe both VS Studio and the Target Compiler (CodeWarrior) are both IEE754 compliant, but I have got to get past this first problem before its worth trying on the Target board.
