[erlang-questions] Stand Alone Erlang or Equivalent

besea is not self containied. it uses escript via the unix #! script
hack(*). so you need a unix system with an installed escript. if this
works on windows i will try to get escript into CEAN.
(*) tmi: if the first 4 charactes of a file are #! / or (on most
systems) the first 3 charactes are #!/, then the kernel will try to use
that file as an interpreter for the file. the kernel uses 32 characters
starting from /, or (on most systems) all characters until end of line.
Those were the days...
EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
