[erlang-questions] "Cast" in gen_server et al
Thu Jul 10 04:13:17 CEST 2008
From what I can tell, "cast(Name, Request)" means:
"Send the message to the server with name Name with the request Request
and return Ok.".
I think one would use it to just send requests to the server if you
didn't want to bother about receiving any response.
Hence, I would assume that it's named "cast" in the sense of "cast a
spell at" rather than in "cast a pointer to an integer"?
