Open Source Erlang is a functional programming language designed at
the Ericsson Computer Science Laboratory.
Some of Erlang main features are:
* Clear declarative syntax and is largely free from side-effects;
* Built-in support for real-time, concurrent and distributed programming;
* Designed for development of robust and continuously operated programs;
* Dynamic code replacement at runtime.
The Erlang distribution also includes OTP (Open Telecom Platform) which
provides a rich set of libraries and applications.
This package is a dummy package which will install Erlang/OTP runtime,
applications, sources, code examples and the Erlang editing mode for Emacs.
