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.
