I am interested in using the erl_interface libraries to make a Smalltalk virtual machine act as a C-node, for communicating with other erlang processes. The libraries generated when building erlang are static libraries (ei.a
and friends). Has anybody out there sucessfully compiled the erl_interface code as shared libraries? It seems like it shouldn't be too difficult, but my skills with gcc and make are only recently developing, maybe someone else has a makefile to do this already?
<br><br>It would be easy to share a Smalltalk bridge if the erl_interface could be linked dynamically to the Smalltalk virtual machine. While linking statically is a possibility, compiling the Smalltalk virtual machine from source is a much more difficult task and would be a barrier to entry for many. Any help, experience or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Initially I want to do this on Linux, then eventually Windows and OSX too.
