Agreed, but don't forget file:script().
It does the same thing as file:eval(), but returns the
value of the last expression, rather than just 'ok'.
A nice way to generate data to be read later using file:consult()
is io:format(FileDescr, "~p.~n", [Term]), alt.
lists:foreach(fun(X) -> io:format(FD, "~p~n", [X]) end, Terms).
