Rw: FSM advantages?

Adding to Vance's comment, let's not forget that the predefined behaviours 
do quite a lot of things behind the scenes, things that otherwise need to be 
handled explicitly. Among them: tracing and error reporting, code change, 
works in a supervision tree, a standardized API.

For a simple FSM, it is quite educative to implement it as a basic 
function-based one. The next step would be trying to introduce one of the 
things mentioned above, and I think it will be easy to appreciate that one 
could use the already written and tested ones instead.

best regards,

Could someone tell me the advantages of using
FSM to Erlang receive & send messaging using functions (states), please ?
