Read binary files (big-endian and little endian)

I'm trying to read a binary file in big-endian format from a little-endian machine (PC with Debian GNU/Linux). Octave sintax is, for example:
[VAL, COUNT] = fread(fileID, Inf, 'integer*8', 0, 'ieee-be') and it runs well.
I want to write a C++ function for read the same file using the GNU/Octave C++ library. What function can I use to indicate the endianness type of data storage. The C standard fread function don't have an adecuate option.
