sorry for being so imprecise.

yes, im interesting in distributing a binary only.
for convenience.

1) i wanna deploy 30 times the same application, on client servers, and i dont
wanna bother intalling erlang,  or
2) i have access to a server i cant impose to have erlang installed (say
3) or i wanna build utilitaries, and i dont wanna be  troubled with release
conflicts as time goes by.
4) a demo softwarein a rpm, and i dont want bothering people downloading 8 mo
of environement, or they cant be root ( to install erlang)

these are different points where i may be interested to build a self contained
binary. so i was looking at how to do that.

and which constraints it may brings, like language restrictions.

(and yes, R7b is quick enough for me!)

First, they ignore you.
Then, they laugh at you.
Then, they fight you.
Then, you win.
