[erlang-questions] Newbie question: is there something like a main() method in Erlang?
Sat Apr 28 06:49:34 CEST 2007
I just started learning Erlang. I'm using Joe Armstrong's old book
(Concurrent programming in Erlang).
Anyways I'm wondering if there's like a main() method in Erlang which will
run automatically? Currently from the examples I've been coming across in
the book and online, you've to create a new module and then go to the Erlang
shell and do c('module_name') to compile/load the module. Is there a way to
just say "erl module.beam" and have it invoke some method automatically much
like how if __name__=="__main__" works in Python.
