Try 'erl -man erl_call'
Extract from the man page:
erl_call - Call/Start a Distributed Erlang Node
erl_call makes it possible to start and/or communicate with a
tributed Erlang node. It is built upon the erl_interface library as
example application. Its purpose is to use an Unix shell script
interact with a distributed Erlang node. It performs all
with the Erlang rex server, using the standard Erlang RPC facility.
does not require any special software to be run at the Erlang
The main use is to either start a distributed Erlang node or to make
ordinary function call. However, it is also possible to pipe an
module to erl_call and have it compiled, or to pipe a sequence
Erlang expressions to be evaluated (similar to the Erlang shell).
Options, which cause stdin to be read, can be used with advantage
scripts from within (Unix) shell scripts. Another nice use of
could be from (http) CGI-bin scripts.
