xerl is a very old and obsolete application. I suggest you use
your favorite editor and a seperate Erlang shell to compile/run
your programs. Example: create foo.erl

--- foo.erl ---
-module(foo).
-export([start/0]).
start() -> io:format("Hello World !").

---------------

--- Run the Erlang shell ---
unix> erl
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 4.9.1.b3+ [source]

Eshell V4.9.1.b3+  (abort with ^G)
1> c(foo).                          # Compile foo.erl
foo
2> foo:start().                     # Run foo:start/0
ok
3>
