[[Category:Concepts]]

Brief Test Erlang is not just a language. Ericsson open sourced it's software switching infrastructure, somewhat like AT&T Bell Labs open sourcing Plan9. It's different because Ericsson actually produced real products using Erlang. Erlang is based off of Joe Armstrong's thesis - "Making reliable distributed systems in the presence of software errors". The current download contains: 1) the src code with targets for WIN32, linux and vxworks 2) pre-compiled binaries for win32 and linux 3) system libraries with built-in

  * easily distributable, configurable ( in-memory or disk ) database system called Mnesia
  * native bindings to mysql and postgres
  * SNMP V1, V2 and V3 agents, 
  * a database config that exposes tables as SNMP tables
  * 3rd party contrib libs for - jabber, ldap, radius, ldap, nfs

4) bindings to C, C++, Java, Tk 5) good documentation 6) a couple of books that discuss erlang implementations of non-trivial distributing computing objects
