[erlang-questions] pid to integer and back
Wed Oct 8 18:01:25 CEST 2008
Is there a safe and efficient way to convert pid to integer and back?
I'm assigning each running poker game an integer id. I store this id
into every outgoing packet so there's no database lookup.
I use the id to lookup the game process for every incoming packet,
though. This is proving to be extremely inefficient, even with dirty
I actually repeat the above for every player, so there's twice the
overhead. Is there a way to avoid it?
This would only apply to running games and connected players so this
would be a temporary integer, valid while the process is alive.
