Hello,

Is there any documentation of the data structures used to represent
tuples, lists, binaries etc on the heap. Also is the layout of a
stack frames documented anywhere.

I know they are tagged pointers, but are there any text files which *specify*
the structure or must I read the code (sigh) to find out?

Thanks

/Joe
