[erlang-questions] how can I run emacs from erlang

Is there a simple way to run emacs from erlang?

This doesn't work

> os:cmd("emacs").
"emacs: standard input is not a tty\n"

I just want to pop up a window with emacs in it (and some text in a buffer)
and get the text back when the user quits emacs

Is there an easy way to do this?

And no - I don't want to run erlang inside emacs - I want the other way
