Now I am a bit confused. If the *.app file is supposed
to be in the ebin directory then why doesn't
systools:make_script("appname") find it when I run it?
Even if it is in the ebin should I provide a path
(perhaps that is what I am not doing). My original
problem was that the make_script function couldn't
find the *.app file in ebin (though thats where its
at). I kept getting a file not found error which was a
bit frustrating.
