Roberto, you can read about -erl_args here:

http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/ct_run.html

The CT flag config is unfortunately named, but we decided to keep the
name and rely on the -erl_args feature. With -erl_args we don't have to
prefix all CT flags in order to avoid possible clashes with erl flags
(now and in the future).

Best,
Peter
