[erlang-questions] New to Erlang
Mon Sep 18 17:29:36 CEST 2006
I learnt the basics from the old erlang book, part 1 of which is
available online. It doesn't cover all the new features of the
language, but it is very good for getting started.
The URL of part 1 of the book is: http://www.erlang.org/download/
The online documentation does a pretty good job of providing the next
level, and then there is a wealth of example code written by
excellent erlang programmers in the libraries. These are all open
source and well worth a look. lists.erl is a good place to start.
The best way as ever is to have something small and useful to
implement and learn as you go along
Finally there is the mailing list. The archives contain a wealth of
knowledge, and people here are always willing to help once you have
demonstrated a good level of self-learning pain :-)
