Let me explain a bit, there were many lines who look like theses:
parse(<< Id:32/little-unsigned, Oid:32/little-unsigned, Soid:16/little-unsigned >>, State) ->
Now I really prefer to see lines looking like this:
parse(<< ?UINT32( Id ),
?UINT32( Oid ),
?UINT16( Soid ) >>, State) ->
The magic trick was to define macros at the beginning of the erl module like this:
-define( UINT32(X), X:32/little-unsigned).
-define( UINT16(X), X:16/little-unsigned).
Now everyone can read those parse lines easily...
