Roger is correct, and also, you've asked this same question in two other
threads in the recent past:

http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2018-September/096428.html
http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2018-December/096858.html

The answers you've already gotten clearly aren't what you want to hear, but
they've consistently indicated you're misusing the ~/.erlang feature.
