The first two questions in the Erlang FAQ are:
| 1.1. In a nutshell, what is Erlang?
| Erlang is a general-purpose programming language and runtime
| environment. Erlang has built-in support for concurrency, distribution
| and fault tolerance. Erlang is used in several large telecommunication
| systems from Ericsson. The most popular implementation of Erlang is
| available as open source from the open source erlang site.
| 1.2. What is OTP?
| OTP is a large collection of libraries for Erlang to do everything
| from compiling ASN.1 to providing a WWW server. Most projects using
| "Erlang" are actually using "Erlang/OTP", i.e. the language and the
| libraries. OTP is also open source.
