πŸ’‘ Erlang FAQ


Is Erlang used in industry?

Erlang (and Elixir) are used by many industries within many areas, including Fintech, Security, Blockchain and IoT. Companies choose Erlang and Elixir, because of the ease with which fault-tolerant and scalable programs deployable in a distributed network can be written.


Should you learn Erlang before Elixir?

You don't need to learn Erlang to learn elixir. Learn elixir use it, you can be very productive with it. If later for whatever reason you want to dive deeper into Erlang you can. I've used elixir for 5 years now.


Why is Erlang not popular?

One reason Erlang may be declining is because of newer functional programming languages, such as Elixir or Elm. Although Erlang is certainly useful, it's less accessible for beginners.


How do I stop Erlang process?

A process can terminate itself by calling one of the BIFs exit(Reason), erlang:error(Reason), erlang:error(Reason, Args), erlang:fault(Reason) or erlang:fault(Reason, Args). The process then terminates with reason Reason for exit/1 or {Reason,Stack} for the others.


Is Erlang compiled?

Erlang programs must be compiled to object code. The compiler can generate a new file that contains the object code. The current abstract machine, which runs the object code, is called BEAM, therefore the object files get the suffix .


Which formula is also known as Erlang C?

It was named after the Danish Mathematician A.K. Erlang, who developed the Erlang C formula 100 years ago in 1917. It is a derivation of the Poisson Formula – but using a special case where k=0. This assumes that the Average Handling Time of calls is distributed by a version of Poisson called the Erlang Distribution.Jan 10, 2018
