Note about CEAN Erlang

The CEAN distribution of Erlang is fairly useful for OS X dwellers like myself, but note that there is a small “gotcha” to be aware of. It doesn’t come with the c() function – ie the compiler – installed!

You need to enter cean:install(compiler). in the BEAM shell before you can load and execute .erl files.
