> No, the beam compiler currently does no inlining at all by default. You have to specify +inline on the command line or -compile(inline) in the module. (Now that line number information is included in exceptions, inlining could perhaps be turned on by default. Previously, it could make error messages confusing by pointing to the function where the code was inlined rather than to the actual source code function.)
