  • ignore shebang string

deadok22 commented Sep 14, 2013

I've started working on it and there are some questions I'd like to ask.

  1. You can't compile files containing shebang with erlc, so I wonder how our project builders should deal with it - should they ignore files with shebang in them, comment out shebangs prior to compilation or maybe copy these files to output directory?
  2. If we're going to support escript, I guess, it would be a good thing to have run configurations to run escript files?
  3. Which other features would be good to have?

I think it must be copy as is to output dir during publish, but comment first line and compile for other purposes (for example check errors.
