On Windows 95/NT, the preferred way to start the Erlang system is:
werl <script-flags> <user-flags>
This will start Erlang in its own window, which is nice for interactive
use (command-line editing will work and there are scrollbars).
All flags except the
-oldshell flag work as in
In cases there you want to redirect standard input and/or standard output
or use Erlang in a pipeline, the
werl is not suitable, and the
erl program should be used instead.
