Unicode, Utf-8 and a little bit of history

Today, I found and awesome post about the history of character encoding.

I had set up, couple of times in the past, for the quest to find something on the web that could help me understand this topic. However, I haven´t managed to succeed so far. I stumbled across this post, searching for something unrelated and found it worth mentioning!

Happy encoding!

Debbuging on Erlang

In one of those enjoyable side projects that I´m workin on, I have an Erlang node running on a remote machine. There isn´t much done so far, so I am continuously making changes to the software and reconpiling it on the way.

The language I´m using it´s Erlang and I use Emacs to connect to the node remotely and make the changes on the fly. The problem arises when I make a mistake and I want to debugg it. I´m quite new to Erlang and I´ve been finding it hard to test. It´s been a pain, using io:format every now and then.

Today as I was lingering around on the Web, I found the Erlang debbuger. I started trying out and man I´m happy! In order to use it, the modules about to debugg, need to be compiled with debbug info (c(module,[debbug_info])). Ones that´s done, just call the im() program and done!
