Erlang Programming/Kernel and Stdlib

Kernel and StdlibEdit

The kernel provides simple process-management services, module access, and garbage collection.

The Stdlib includes a large number of commonly used utility functions. Packages included in STDLIB include utilities for math, regexp, printing, various data structures (array, dictionary, tree) and process management (slave, supervisor). A list of functions available in each module can be listed with
