[erlang-questions] Noob Question

Hi all,

Sorry for this noob question but my google-fu is not what it once was.

When I get a crash dump with the slogan "Init terminating in do_boot ()"
and the boot script contains {progress} points such as would get reported
by an  init:get_status/0 message (like here:)

     {progress,preloaded},


Does that get recorded in the crash dump somewhere?  I suspect I know where
the error is occurring but if I could find those progress messages in the
crash dump it might help me to isolate which binary is having a problem
getting loaded.

I mean to say there are a few {progress . . . } messages in the script and
if I could figure out which one it's getting to before it crashes that
would help me to rule in or rule out which binary it isn't finding or which
one it's barfing on.

Also, is there any way to trace the loading of the .boot file which is
compiled from the .script or do I have to basically build a command line to
try to see what's the matter?
