The machines table in the onpload database

The machines table defines the binary type sizes and byte order for different computers. The High-Performance Loader (HPL) uses this information when you transfer binary data.

When ipload creates the onpload database, it inserts definitions for several different types of computers into this table. To transfer binary data to or from a computer that is not described in this table, you must create a machine definition by using the Machines window.
