Announce: an erlang platform for agent programming
Tue Jul 13 15:49:36 CEST 2004
I packaged erlang-R9C-2, wings-0.98.22c, eXAT-0.1.0, dialyzer-1.0.0, eres-0.0.2.alpha, esdl-0.94.0615, yaws-1.48, escript-3.0 to Crux linux ditribution.
You can find them at:
If you are using this cool distrib, just type:
# cd /usr/port/yhafri/YOUR_PACKAGE
# pkgmk -d -i

>> >eXAT was presented, for the first time, at the italian "Workshop on

>> >(see http://www.diee.unica.it/woa03/), and it gained a discrete interest

>> >An improvement of eXAT was then presented at the international IEEE

>> >(see http://siplab.csee.wvu.edu/wetice04/). In this occasion, eXAT
>> >gained a so high interest that the paper received the "Best Paper

>> >2004, when the eXAT platform will be "officially" presented at the Agent
>> >Exhibition that will be held in Erfurt (Germany) at NetObjectDays 2004
