Yes it is. I don't want to have all my 103 .erl files in the same
directory, for obvious reasons.
I would like to be able to make my own directory layout, and not have to
use the OTP directory layout. My impression is that this wish is shared
by other Open Source projects using Erlang (at least ejabberd and Yaws
It would not be too difficult to modify systools to make it possible to
specify paths to source code and beam files using -I arguments. I was
working on a patch for this that I was going to propose. Would you
consider such a patch?
I think it would also be good to be able to give a path to the .app
