[erlang-questions] Changing environment variables for an application started from boot script
Sun Aug 12 16:38:26 CEST 2007
You are right, the variables in the .app file are basically intended
It is possible to change them (with application:set_env/3), but see
the warnings in the doc.
One alternative and quite nice way to deal with the config issue is
to make an mnesia table for all the config items, and use
mnesia:subscribe to notify users of the config about changes.
