[erlang-questions] gen_[server|fsm|event]:format_status/2 no longer called
Tue Feb 17 02:51:55 CET 2009
In R12B-5 I find that sys:get_status/1,2 no longer returns
status formatted for the type of process it is.
I have long used the undocumented gen_server et. al. callback
to format the process state data. A call to sys:get_status/1,2
would result in call to gen_server:format_status/2 which would
format the state data for a gen_server process. If you had
exported format_status/2 from your callback module it would be
called to format the state data for your application.
This all seemed quite sensible to me and I used this often.
Now I will miss it.
