I have just finished to write the small application required for the Erlang
certification, and it was interesting as it made me work with some things
that I never did before...
And some questions came up. Maybe you can shed some light:
As far as I can tell, there isn't a way to automatically connect nodes. In
order to (for example) access a global server and allow for it's node to
crash and come back online transparently, one has to know that node's name
and it's host name. I don't really like the idea of hardcoding the node/host
names... Or one has to have a central registrar node which all new nodes
must connect to, but that is just moving away the problem, because that
central node might crash too.
Is it as I think, that there is no way to go around this problem, or have I
Another question is about io. If there is a process reading from the
standard input, is there any way to cancel that input request and let the
process keep running?
