[erlang-questions] Real time audio transcoding with a port driver
Tue Jul 2 12:53:27 CEST 2013
I checked with timer:tc/3 and calling a port driver with encode or decode
timer:tc(?MODULE, command, [Port, encode, Binary])
command(Port, Type, Binary) ->
port_control(Port, Type, Binary).
Is this the correct way to measure it?
How do I choose how much to bump reductions assuming that it takes 4ms to
Is it reasonable to assume that a more modern and powerful CPU will result
with 1/10 time which will be < 1 ms?
I'm trying to understand if I can use NIF today and take advantage of dirty
schedulers and native processes in a year or two.
