[erlang-questions] ei, erlang_interface, creation and deprecation
Tue Sep 4 09:15:41 CEST 2007
I've gone through the archives, but the search seems to be
broken. I have two questions both concerning the ei library.
The first question is, how should I be calculating the creation
short that is passed to ei_connect_init (or erl_connect_xinit)? All
of the code I've seen "in the wild" just set it 0 and move on, but
the docs claim its used in case of node name collisions. So, what's
the "right way" to get the creation number?
The second is, is erl_interface still deprecated? I found a post
from long ago that mentioned that, but later ones mention that it
and ei would be getting "cleaned up". None of the docs mention any
of this. And the docs do not mention ei, much at all (no User Guide,
for instance). I assume that the docs are just out of date and
needing some love?
Thanks for the help.
