If an ISO 8601 date is “big-endian”, i.e. the most significant bit is first and the least significant is last, then what do we call data structures where the most significant part is first/at the top, and the least significant is last/at the bottom?
ISO 8601 date example: 2019-02-01T2157
data structure example: atom -> neutron -> quark
- data structure example: body -> hand -> finger
I would like to be able to refer to this terminology when talking about any natural hierarchy such that any one branch makes ‘common sense’ from left to right (or top to bottom).
