Hi,

Hmm. The magical incantation you are using is right

erl -noshell -noinput -s lfe_boot start

What I am wondering is how you have set your paths so it can find all the
files? I assume that as you have no problems running the compiler they are
set up right, but if you are having having problems this may be the cause.
Let me know.

Note that the lfe shell doesn't have as many built-in commands as the
vanilla shell but you can use many of them by directly calling the
corresponding function in the module 'c'. This is what the vanilla shell
does. So for example you want the help info then you would do:

> (: c help)

LFE is progressing and I intend to work more on it soon. It depends on what
input I get. Let me know how it goes and if you find any bugs,

Robert
