Good for you. (:


Interesting. I wonder, what is your view of Erlang's suitability for
robotics work? 

I would think that for most types of robots, the real-time properties
of Erlang ought to be quite sufficient, and the ability to handle
complex concurrent problems ought to be attractive.

Throw in the ECOMP Erlang Processor, which is slowly materializing,
and there might be some very interesting potential.

Your comments are welcome.
