[erlang-questions] erl_interface shared libraries
Sat Sep 8 19:00:22 CEST 2007
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?
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.
