I used IBM's Eclipse IDE during the last weeks and was quite impressed
by it's Java support. 

Among some nice stuff like problem resolution, where the system might offer 
you several solutions to an existing problem, Eclipse also features some 
refactoring functions.
I got really used to them, using mostly the module renaming and the
"grab this code and make a new function of it" option.

It would be great, if Erlang was supported in a similiar way by Eclipse.
I really need to get a look at the existing Erlang plug-in for Eclipse.

The other thing of course is to develop some useful refactoring 
concepts for Erlang so thanks for the work you do!

Regards,
Marc
