The SASL application provides support for:
- Error logging
- Alarm handling
- Release handling
- Report browsing
Section SASL Error Logging describes the error handler that produces the supervisor, progress, and crash reports, which can be written to screen or to a specified file. It also describes the Report Browser (RB).
The sections about release structure and release handling have been moved to section OTP Design Principles in System Documentation.
It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the Erlang programming language.
