Hi all, Erlang newbie here. So, hello all :-) Now,

I wish to do a fire and forget http post in Erlang.

I looked at the httpc module which seems to allow synchronous and
asynchronous calls but in the latter case i do not expect a return
value so don't need a request id .... and not sure whether that
behaviour influences what I want ... does it hold open a connection or
use up resources on a response that is never going to happen etc.

Does anyone know the best approach?

many thanks,
