Lucindo> The ErlangVM and BEAM file specifications are available?

Denys > I join to this question.

The BEAM file format is documented.

The VM is not.

   | The internals of the BEAM file format are described on Björn's
   | homepage . Eventually this will/might include a description of the
   | virtual machine's instructions. Björn also includes some benchmarks
   | comparing different versions of the BEAM machine. You may also want to
   | take a look at the beam_lib module.

Björn's homepage is, of course, http://www.erlang.se/~bjorn/
