NUXI problem

NUXI problem: /nuk'see pro'bl*m/ n. Refers to the problem of
   transferring data between machines with differing byte-order.  The
   string `UNIX' might look like `NUXI' on a machine with a
   different `byte sex' (e.g., when transferring data from a
   little-endian to a big-endian, or vice-versa).  See also
   middle-endian, swab, and bytesexual.
