 I'm tryng to make some new BIF's - can anybody enligten me as to
what the minimal make incantations are to recompile my BIFs.

 So far I have changed bif.tab and binary.c (in erts/emulator/beam)

 A top-level

    make clean  
    make

	takes a zillion years always seems to work
 
    make emulator

	appears[1] to work and is somewhat faster, but still can take a
long time


 What is the approved method with the fastest turn-around time?

 Thanks

/Joe
 
[1] not always ??? - once I got a beam loader error which vanished after
another
make clean
