Concurrent Programming in Erlang

Overview

Erlang is a concurrent, functional programming language designed for programming large industrial real time systems. The language is untyped and has a pattern matching syntax. Functions are written as a set of recursion equations and the language has explicit concurrency and asynchronous message passing. Written in a tutorial style, the emphasis is on learning through example and a number of well known problems in designing and programming concurrent fault-tolerant real-time ...

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A tutorial approach to the functional programming language for designing large industrial real-time systems, covering programming of real-time and distributed fault-tolerant systems. After an introduction to the ERLANG language and commonly used paradigms, an applications section presents self-contained chapters with case studies of typical applications. Requires previous programming experience, but no knowledge of functional or logic languages. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
