There is man page "erl -man erl_ddll", and I also found it in the Kernel
To quote it:
"The erl_ddll module can load and link a linked-in driver,
if run-time loading and linking of shared objects, or
dynamic libraries, is supported by the underlying operat
Tobbe's byteorder contribution uses this, although he also uses the old
driver.h not the new erl_driver.h so I guess even more has changed in R6B.
It looks like there is some queue-oriented stuff as well. All very nice, I
just need to work out what it does and if/how to use it :-)
