[erlang-questions] code_server and ERL_LIBS: bug or feature?

Hi Serge,

the embedded mode has always been this way, and I think it is the desired
behaviour. In embedded mode, all code is loaded during system start-up
according to the boot script (where all required paths are specified).
There is no dynamic code loading in this mode.

In some (debugging) cases you might want to load code which is not part of
your release (i.e. not specified in the boot script). This is still
possible, but then you need to explicitly add the paths using code:add_path
and friends.
