I was quite sure that I had to design the VM from scratch, but my idea 
was not to do the same for the compiler; I would like to start from the 
.beam file and write the interpreter, but, as far as I know, an official 
  specification of .beam and of the instruction set does not exist.

In any case, I'll follow your suggestions.

Thanks!
