Please forgive me for the misunderstanding I caused by the way I
stated my questions. The information I am looking for is based on
The packet sniffer program is a class project normally done in Java.
Java is taught at the college ... several Java books are on the
shelf ...etc I have watched several Java instructors take a while
to complete this project in a timely manner.
I have been looking at Erlang since this past month
Erlang has been successfully loaded on Solaris x86 and sparc ,
Mac os x, linux, and windows. I am also using the livecd
The Question about current OS support my fault
I am currently following the OTP tutorial material
I have permission from the professor to use Erlang instead of Java.
I want to be sure there there will be enough resources to finish
the journey and possibly recommend the program be offered as course
I wanted to know that since there a currently no books on the shelf
if Lisp would help in the learning process
I have also noticed that several companies that started projects in
Erlang self taught from the ACM presentations like Sendmail
mentioned needing to hire a trainer to help solve some issues in
That it is good practice to use OTP methods which superseded the
methods in the original Erlang book.
