Embedding Erlang as an interpreter in programs in other languages

Hi,

I'm pondering on how it might be possible to embed erlang in say C or
Objective C programs (as opposed to the more normal case of the other way
round).

The Objective C program would provide the gui stuff, startup code and event
loop - the logic would be provided by the embedded Erlang interpreter. The
first application would probably be a nice shell application (like the win32
one) for Mac OS X.

I think this is kind of how the win32 version works anyway - at least it is
a dll.. Or maybe SAE will do something like this?

Thoughts?

Sean
