[erlang-questions] HTTP requests and the meaning of eaddrinuse

Hello,

I've been putting together some Erlang programmes to load a potential
very large set of data into CouchDB and when using:

http:request(put, {"http://192.168.192.10:5984/infax/00_CF07", [],
"application/json", {"_id": "00_CF07", "SeriesTitle": "Harold Wilson",
"FirstTransmissionDate": "2000-01-01"}}, [], []).

as an example, I do get, from time-to-time when I'm recursing over a
large and deep directory structure, an atom returned by http:request of:

eaddrinuse

However, I've been unable to find any reference to its meaning. Could
someone tell me what the error eaddrinuse actually means, and for that
matter why it might be happening.

I'm using Erlang R12B-5 on Windows XP SP2 (but I'm sure that doesn't
have anything to do with it).


Regards

Philip Fennell
