[erlang-questions] Using the half-word emulator with the erlang-solutions ubuntu package
Wed Apr 10 20:36:48 CEST 2013
As far as I'm aware, we don't have half-word emulator enabled in our packages, so this seems like an erroneous statement on ESL website -- I'll investigate it more tomorrow.
Both disabling HiPE and enabling half-word emulator are done while building packages. Some more info: http://stackoverflow.com/a/1185490/547223

Subject: [erlang-questions] Using the half-word emulator with the erlang-solutions ubuntu package
The page on the erlang-solutions website says that the packages support the half-word emulator:
"These have included HiPE enabled, 32 and 64 bit configurations, alongside the half-word emulator"
I see [hipe] when starting the shell so half-word is probably not enabled.
I'm not using hipe so there is no problem disabling it.
Do I need to set a flag when installing the deb package?
Do I need to use a flag when starting erlang or creating a release with rebar in the vm.args?
Are there reasons not to use half-word besides the 4GB process memory limit?
