[erlang-questions] Making rpc calls from escript

I did try that bash script. As it was, it tried to use a fully-qualified
name because my host used  as its erlang node name
and the algorithm thinks a dotted quad is an fqdn :)

So I hack der code a bit. Got a more interesting error:

{"init terminating in do_boot",{{badmatch,{error,{1,erl_parse,["syntax
error before: ","168.150"]}}},[{init,start_it,1},{init,start_em,1}]}}

I'll ponder that as I fly back home.

Vik :v)
