[erlang-questions] How to use Pman for looking at process state

Dear All

I'm using Pman to look at a running erlang application.  Many of the 
processes are running functions in receive loops like the following:

myFunc(State) ->
     receive
         % some clauses defining NewState
     end,
     myFunc(NewState).

Tracing a process allows me to see the messages received by and sent 
from the process.  Is there any way I can see the value of State?  If 
not, is there another to see the value of process variables?

With thanks and best wishes

Ivan
