[erlang-questions] re(3) structures across systems

Hello,

I noticed that the result of re:compile differs between a FreeBSD  
64bits system and an x86 workstation running MacOS X 10.5.5 with  
erlang compiled on 32 bits. Except for the runtime architecture, both  
versions of erlang are identical.

Yet, the structure compiled on the FreeBSD station works on the Mac  
and reciprocally. Can I rely on it? I believe I can because of the  
distributed nature of erlang, but since the structures differ, I  
thought I would raise the question, especially considering that re(3)  
is considered experimental.

Paul
