A little known feature is the Restricted Shell:
which allows you to tailor what can and cannot be run from the shell.

The shell_default is also handy as it allows you to create your own
short form commands (no module name):

Create an erl alias which add the '+Bi' argument and you can have a
quasi-safe REPL for non-programmer operators.
