To shutdown the Erlang system and the Erlang shell type Control-C. You will see
the following output:
BREAK: (a)bort (c)ontinue (p)roc info (i)nfo (l)oaded
(v)ersion (k)ill (D)b-tables (d)istribution
Type "a" to leave the Erlang system.
Another way to shutdown the Erlang system is by entering halt():
In an early version of the tutorial, this information was indeed missing and I
added it later when this was pointed out. Maybe you have some outdated version?
