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 following.


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  
of instruction.
  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  
there project
That it is good practice to use OTP methods which superseded the  
methods in the original Erlang book.
