If you replace the "-mode embedded " with -noshell, the shell isn't
started. (Also note that the erlc compiler knows how to compile
.rel files, we can just call erlc test.rel to produce the script+boot

An even easier way to make a small script to run your erlang code is
erl -noshell -s test

io:format(... writes to stdout, halt() exits the erlang system back
to the unix shell.

There is no _easy_ way to write to stderr.
