I disagree. IT is a cyclical industry.
Back in the bad old days codes were written to run on IBM mainframes. Which
used the ECDIC character set.
There were Little Endian and Big Endian machines.
VAX machines had a rich set of file IO patterns. I really dont think you
could read data written on an IBM by using a VAX machine.
