Per the responses on the debian-ia64 list, I believe PA-RISC uses the
IEEE big-endian format.

conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse

himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
