CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This book is an in-depth introduction to Erlang, a programming language ideal
for any situation where concurrency, fault tolerance, and fast response is
essential. Erlang is gaining widespread adoption with the advent of multi-core
processors and their new scalable approach to concurrency. With this guide
you'll learn how to write complex concurrent programs in Erlang, regardless of
your programming background or experience.
Written by leaders of the international Erlang community -- and based on
their training material -- Erlang Programming focuses on the language's syntax
and semantics, and explains pattern matching, proper lists, recursion,
debugging, networking, and concurrency.
This book helps you:
Understand the strengths of Erlang and why its designers included specific
features Learn the concepts behind concurrency and Erlang's way of handling it
Write efficient Erlang programs while keeping code neat and readable Discover
how Erlang fills the requirements for distributed systems Add simple graphical
user interfaces with little effort Learn Erlang's tracing mechanisms for
debugging concurrent and distributed systems Use the built-in Mnesia database
and other table storage features
Erlang Programming provides exercises at the end of each chapter and simple
examples throughout the book.
