[erlang-questions] Waiting for a node to start using run_erl

When staring an erl node using run_erl, if the -daemon switch is used, control returns to the terminal immediately without letting me know whether the node was really started.
The switch is recommended in the documentation at: http://erlang.org/doc/man/run_erl.html

It says: Without this option, run_erl must be started using several tricks in the shell to detach it completely from the terminal in use when starting it.

Is there a way to use run_erl and ensure that the node is started. This would be especially useful when starting the node from a shell script using run_erl.
