Not sure if it's been posted already, but to(-Covid-related-)day I run into this culture:
hello_world() -> io:fwrite("hello, world\n").
Every command in the Erlang shell needs to end with a full stop. It looks like someone created it to get on Cuchulainn's nerves (-:
At least you know where you stand with Erlang. Not like Python, which is all over the place.
Erlangs was in Ericsson's AXE telephone system in the 1990s but a lot in C++. Trained 100s of those developers. The 90s were booming. You could put your punctuation anywhere you wanted.
Erlang is fault-tolerant in no small part due to AFAIR
The Erlang programming language
data, pattern matching
, and functional programming
The sequential subset of the Erlang language supports eager evaluation
, single assignment
, and dynamic typing
C++ was used as front-end..
BTW nice soothing music for you all
