Thanks again for your replies. I am now doing some "viral marketing" of 
Erlang here in Cisco. After your successful infiltration of Nortel (through 
the acquisition of Bluetail), it is time to attack the real enemy (of 
Ericsson). It certainly has had the desired effect on Nortel... :-)

As I am interfacing with an existing system, I cannot influence the IDL, 
I'm afraid.

As I am only prototyping at this stage, I can afford to wait for the 
Win-build of OTP R8A, unless I run into any problems.


One issue I have come across is that the IDL I am using has hex numbers 
(0x10, etc), and also hex numbers bitwise shifted (0x10 << 10). ic:gen() 
does not seem to support this. Is this non-standard IDL, or is it an 
unsupported feature in ic:gen? (So far I have circumvented the issue by 
substituting in the base10 numbers).

KJ.
