Indeed. I learned it and can say it was time well spent. I am now
building my linked in drivers with it and it is really slick. What
I have been doing with these is to have as much as possible done in
Erlang so the C driver code just marshalls memory blocks into the
emulator where the Erlang side deconstructs them. Sending to the
board is the opposite procedure. Since these are C structures this
code is dependent on the underlying OS completely. The automake
system figures out the sizes of everything from an int to a
'struct foo [MAXF]' and builds the appropriate erlang code.
I have ported these drivers to different OSes in 32 bit, 64 bit,
little endian, big endian, etc. Just type ./configure; make.
As Hannibal says; I like it when a plan comes together.
