SYNOPSIS[OPTIONS ] file ...
DESCRIPTIONThe program starts the runtime system typically for the execution of one or more scripts. It is similar to iex(1), but exits when the executed script does.
OPTIONSNote that many of the options mentioned here were borrowed from the Erlang shell, therefore erl(1) can be used as an additional source of information on the options.
- Does not halt the Erlang VM after execution.
- Separates the options passed to the compiler from the options passed to the executed code.
- Allows passing parameters to the Erlang runtime.
- Stores the magic cookie value which is used only when it wasn't specified via the option --cookie (see above) If the file doesn't exist when a node starts, it will be created.
