[erlang-questions] how: Simple distributed Erlang in docker containers
Wed May 18 07:15:48 CEST 2016
Since the original message has been removed it is difficult to explain
what I mean with undocumented. But interested parties can look it up.
Especially the "Name" argument, that included an IP address. The
resulting behaviour is very useful if the computer has been configured
in a way where Erlang/OTP can not find out the fully qualified host
name. But I have not seen this documented.
