[erlang-questions] dyalizer? (was Re: Alternatives to Elixir)

The short way is to introduce a new compiler option +core_info which does like +debug_info but for Core’s AST and then make Dialyzer use that BEAM chunk if present.

Dialyzer doesn’t actually analyse Erlang code, it takes the specs in it, compile to Core and does the analysis on Core.

Thus any language targeting Core with semantics similar to Erlang should be able to benefit from Dialyzer.
