missing header eimd5.h
Last modified: 2012-09-07 07:25:46 EDT
Somehow file eimd5.h is missing.
Expected to be found in:
as part of erlang-erl_interface-R14B-04.1.fc16.x86_64 package.
Is src/misc/eimd5.h really part of the EI API?
The location of eimd5.h suggests that it is not, and thus is rightly not shipped.
Looks like this could be workarounded by using openssl/md5.h in user's code. Still I think it would be good to include Erlang's src/misc/eimd5.h in the distribution, as is done in Erlang Solution's rpms. Just for consistency.
Unfortunately the Erlang distribution didn't do a complete job at properly exporting all functions needed to connect to an Erlang node in non-blocking manner. Hence some low-level function calls are needed from erl_interface-3.7.5/src/*/*.h headers which are actually included in ei.a.
See for example eixx project using ei (https://github.com/saleyn/eixx)
As a result this request definitely has a merit!
Since Erlang distribution is already divided into enormously big amount of small packages, I think it would be easy to add one more - erlang-erl_interface-dev or erlang-erl_interface-src package including the whole /usr/lib/erlang/lib/erl_interface-$vsn/src to cover this need.
