[erlang-questions] How to fork/clone a process in Erlang?

Hi,

How can I fork/clone a process in Erlang, just as the fork in Unix?

I have searched a lot but just got nothing related to that. I suppose the
usage may look like this:

case fork() of
  {parent, Pid} -> in_parent_process_now();
  {child, Pid} -> in_child_process_now();
end.

Any ideas?


Thanks,

Xiao Jia
