Hi erlang gurus,

Is it legal to send messages to any erlang process by means of driver_send_term from a separate thread started by erl_drv_thread_create?
I.e. can I send messages to the process not from the port driver callback, but at any time from the function specified when invoking erl_drv_thread_create?

Best Regards,
