[erlang-questions] best way to implement a "barrier"

I need to make sure that a bunch of processes start doing work all at  
the same time. I'm looking at 10-50k processes. What is the best way  
to implement this?

To be more precise, I need to make sure my poker games hang around  
until told to start. What happens otherwise is that I try to start,  
say, 10k games and by the time games 7-10k start, the first few  
thousand may have already finished. This complicates counting the  
number of games running concurrently.

	Thanks, Joel
