Your own behaviours

Hi!

Mandatory callback functions, among other things, are defined
in the module otp_internal. This module is used when compiling
modules having -behavior attribute.

If you wish to extend your OTP with your own behaviors, otp_internal
must (should) be changed.

My suggestion is that the functions in the otp_internal are changed to
look for the "answers" in the generic module corresponding
to the behaviour at hand. In this way you do not need to change
modules belonging to the original system. But instead only program
a set of required functions in any new behaviour you invent.


Best Regards,

Lennart
