Just to clarify - if you're consuming RabbitMQ messages then amqp_selective_consumer or amqp_gen_consumer will be the simplest choice. All the other advice is fine and good, but the OP is clearly relatively new to Erlang/OTP and those simplifying behaviours are clearly more appropriate to his needs.

I've not seen this before - it sounds interesting so I'll take a look. :)

Cheers,
