[erlang-questions] questions about ERLANG!

hi everybody. I have just discovered Erlang! it is very exciting. I have
been making scripts with perl that call each other so I have hundreds of
scripts running at once. my friend told me Erlang has processes so I
thought I could replace my scripts with Erlang! I had bought the book
programming Erlang. very good book and fun to read, but I still have
questions about Erlang! it is my first functinal language and so far that
has been pretty confusing! I am still reading the book too.
recursive blew my mind! I have tried forever on this code and I finally
have it working. there are no for loops in erlang so I had to write my own
into recursive. here is the program what I came up with:
the goal of this program is to take all the numbers of the list and add them
together. but it will not compile! here is the error:
~$ erlc adder.erl
./adder.erl:5: syntax error before: true
./adder.erl:4: function for_loop/3 undefined
where is my program wrong? I have written programs before this and they
compiled. but this one really stumps me. I cannot figure out what is
I have not got to the paralell part of Erlang yet but I hear it lets you
automagically scale into the cloud! that is my goal with Erlang!
