Mikael,

Thank you for your response.

I guess no one uses hipe:load/1 since it is broken. It is documented in hipe:help_hiper(), though. We wanted to use it as a workaround to the other bug I submitted a patch for (native code of early modules is not loaded), and we ended up duplicating the code in our internal tool that invokes dialyzer. Considering that there is a compilation option to compile a code natively but to not load this code ([native, {hipe, [no_load]}]), I guess hipe:load/1 makes sense even if the other bug is fixed.

Is the test suite used by HiPE developers open source ? Where is it located ?

Regards,

Paul
