Ulf, thanks for that link.  The discussion of pmap is very
interesting, as is the entire presentation. I don't suppose there's
video or a podcast  of the spoken portion of the presentation?

I have to admit I am not familiar with the Erlang version of
QuickCheck ( a similar tool is widely used in Haskell). Googling
QuickCheck led me to a commercial tool at http://www.quviq.com/ .  Is
this the same tool you mention in your presentation?   I saw no price
mentioned on the quviq site, so I'm guessing this is not something the
average student of Erlang can afford to purchase for home use...
