[erlang-questions] Cocoa IDE for Erlang (again)

I thought I should turn my previous question around and ask it  
differently.

Suppose I wanted to provide IntelliSense and similar functionality  
for Erlang. I think this will require re-parsing the code buffer on  
every keystroke or whenever "." (dot) is typed.

What is the most efficient way to implement the interface between the  
editor and the Erlang VM?

Would this be pipes? TCP? Building the IDE on top of the Erlang VM  
itself?

In the later case it seems that the buffer would need to be copied in  
memory to be moved from the Cocoa structures to an Erlang binary that  
can be supplied to Erlang code.

	Thanks, Joel
