[erlang-patches] Process priority levels
Fri Mar 8 15:07:28 CET 2013
In the specs and the documentation of the spawn_opt family of functions
there is the following definition of priority levels:
Level = low | normal | high
However, the process_flag/1 function in that module reads:
process_flag(Flag :: priority, Level) -> OldLevel
Level = OldLevel = priority_level()
priority_level() = low | normal | high | max
This is clearly inconsistent. Change specs to use the priority_level()
type declaration instead of re-defining it in various places.
git fetch git://github.com/kostis/otp.git erlang-spawn_opt-process_level
PS. When included, the erlang.beam file in erts/preloaded/ebin should
also be re-generated somehow. It's not so clear to me how one does that.
