[erlang-questions] How to access CouchDB?

I have a small database that's running right now in CouchDB, it's called
sample_database.  What I'd
like to do is to read, create, delete, update documents and run some of the
views inside from an
Erlang app.  I looked online and found this example:

>From that, I proceeded to make the following little script:


-define(ADMIN_USER_CTX, {user_ctx, #user_ctx{roles = [<<"_admin">>]}}).

start() ->
  io:format("Hello world!~n~n"),

  couch_db:open(<<"sample_database">>, [?ADMIN_USER_CTX]).

However, when I run this, I get the following error:
18> test:start().
Hello world!

** exception error: undefined function couch_db:open/2

It's obvious I'm not including a library of some sort.  I'm curious how I
can connect to my little
database in the simplest way possible just to start with.  Has anyone done
this before?
