[erlang-questions] Make sure epmd is running?
Thu Nov 12 19:08:43 CET 2015
I just ran across this code I wrote a few months ago:
_Hack = os:cmd("epmd -daemon"), % XXX dirty hack to make sure epmd is
Obviously, I promised myself at the time that I'd fix it later. Is there a
better fix, though? The program is a command line app, so ideally I'd
rather not require that the operator know about epmd (or indeed anything
about operating an Erlang system, if possible), so I considered something
about "here's how to make sure that epmd starts at boot" or something, but
it seemed worse given the use case than the above.
So, is there a tidy way to start-epmd-if-not-running from within Erlang?
