but this doesn't work, at least on windows:

; echo 1 + 1. > inputfile
; erl < inputfile
Eshell V5.1  (abort with ^G)

BREAK: (a)bort (c)ontinue (p)roc info (i)nfo (l)oaded
       (v)ersion (k)ill (D)b-tables (d)istribution

I had to break erlang manually, because it just doesn't stop
at the end of the redirected input. this is a bug IMHO.

cheers,
Aldo
