[erlang-questions] spawning processes and passing arguments

I keep running into this. I want to spawn processes and pass arguments
to them without using the MFA form (module/function/arguments), so
basically without having to export the function I want to spawn with
arguments. I've gotten around this a few times using closures(fun's)
and having the arguments just be bound values outside the fun, but its
limiting my code structure... I've looked at the docs and spawn only
has the regular spawn/1 and the spawn/3 form, nothing else...

much appreciated
thanks
