[erlang-questions] net_kernel: start()

I found the problem. Epmd is started  automatically from the shell when this command is issued but not from a compiled module. Starting epmd before running my code fixes the issue.

Subject: [erlang-questions] net_kernel: start()


Is there any reason that I cannot reliably run net_kernel:start(['']) from within my code.

It works fine from the erl shell, but not from compiled source. Yet sometimes it does work from compiled code. It's really strange. I posted my code below.
