I don't think there's any simple way to do it without
knowing the details of the file format.
Suppose the file file on the PC starts out with these
0x04 0x03 0x02 0x01 0x02 0x01
If it turns out this is an int followed by a short,
on the Sun it becomes: 0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04 0x01 0x02.
But if it is a short followed by a long, it would
become 0x03 0x04 0x01 0x02 0x01 0x02.
