Erlang and asn.1
Wed Jan 2 12:13:20 CET 2002
Put your ASN.1 definition in a .asn file and run it through the ASN
i.e. erlc MyDefs.asn
This will generate encoder and decoder logic in Erlang.
To decode a BER encoded record of MyType:
Please not that the ASN compiler does not (at least did not prior to
R8) support all ASN.1 constructs.
Please let me know if you run into any problems.
