Announce: an erlang platform for agent programming
Tue Jul 13 00:05:21 CEST 2004
You are right.
Indeed the tarball already contains the "beam" files, so you shouldn't compile
However, I know that having the source code is better :-)
So, now the tarball that can be downloaded from the eXAT web site should be
In also contains a README explaining directory structure and how to compile
Please let me know if you have further problems.

> >Dear Erlang gurus,
> >I would like to announce a new platform for programming Software Agents

> >The platform is called "eXAT" (erlang eXperimental Agent Platform) and
> >provides an "all-in-one framework" allowing to design, with a single
> >tool, agent intelligence, agent behaviour and agent communication.
> >eXAT integrates an Erlang-based expert system engine with an execution

> >machines, and a module able to handle agent messaging.
> >All information can be found on the eXAT Web page:
> >There you may find some papers and the eXAT reference manual. There, you
> >may also download the platform.
> >eXAT was presented, for the first time, at the italian "Workshop on
> >Objects and Agents (WOA 2003)", held last year in Sardinia
> >(see http://www.diee.unica.it/woa03/), and it gained a discrete interest
> >from people traditionally working with Java-based tools.
> >An improvement of eXAT was then presented at the international IEEE
> >"Workshop on Agent-based Computing for Enterprise Collaboration (ACEC
> >2004)", held at WETICE 2004 in Modena
> >(see http://siplab.csee.wvu.edu/wetice04/). In this occasion, eXAT
> >gained a so high interest that the paper received the "Best Paper
> >Currently, only a beta version of the platform can be downloaded from
> >the web site. The first release is scheduled for the end of September
> >2004, when the eXAT platform will be "officially" presented at the Agent
> >Exhibition that will be held in Erfurt (Germany) at NetObjectDays 2004
> >Further messages will be sent to this mailing list when any news on eXAT
> >will be available.
> >In any case, I would appreciate any comment on the functionalities of
> >the platform, the design choices made or anything you think could
