The page was moved. Move discussion is here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Programming languages/Renaming poll.

Mnesia[edit]

"Mnesia" redirects here, but this page does not explain it, and has a "see also" link to this redirect.

Hello, World![edit]

Please, add Hello World example.

-module(hello).
-export([hello_world/0]).

hello_world() -> io:format("hello, world\n").

Nine Nines[edit]

The nine nines claim is uncited and very dubious (3 sec per decade). It is much more likely to be 5 or 6 nines. Can anyone give a citation for this claim?

Maps Data type[edit]

Erlang has a maps (eg. dictionary/object) data type since (?) Version 17.

BEAM and compiling Erlang to C[edit]

work began on the BEAM virtual machine (VM) which compiles Erlang to C

I found the source of that claim (https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/258948.258967) but this does not seem to be true anymore and contradicts https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BEAM_(Erlang_virtual_machine). I propose either removing "which compiles Erlang to C" or rewording this to something like "work began on the BEAM virtual machine (VM) which back then compiled Erlang to C". 2A01:115F:D19:2B00:7980:5D61:4A1E:F4E7 (talk) 12:29, 14 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
