My home page now has the following URL:
The file format document only describes the file format;
not the instruction set for Beam.
Some other useful files in OTP:
beam_lib.erl (in stdlib): utilities for reading and writing beam files.
genop.tab (in the compiler): number, name, and number of operands for
all instructions + some comments.
To disassemble a loaded module to the instructions that are actually
executed, use erts_debug:df(Mod) (a disassembly file will be generated).
