I tend to run the program and then recompile the code with rebar when
I fix things. Then a single l(Mod) is enough to make Erlang hot-deploy
the new code into the running system (ah, OTP is nice here). Because
the code is already running, I can usually see straight away if it
went well or not based on input to the system from the outside. The
trick is to get rid of exploratory testing in the erlang shell for
more than small simple things and then concentrate on automating the
test process, as Vlad suggests in another mail.
