I probably should've mentioned that in terms of larger examples, there
are lots out there. Some core functionality (i.e., in kernel/erts) is
provided by linked in drivers, so the Erlang/OTP source code is a good
place to start (https://github.com/erlang/otp). The spidermonkey
driver used by riak is pretty mature and worth a look
(https://github.com/basho/erlang_js), the ejabberd code base uses a
number of drivers (https://github.com/processone/ejabberd) and there
are plenty of other larger examples out there too (a couple of
lua/erlang integrations for instance).
