The following is a summary of my publicly available projects. They are mainly hosted on github
While ETS is a full feature and efficient method of providing shared
data among processes, it is tightly coupled with the process that
created it. This means if that process terminates/crashes, then all
the data will be lost. To overcome this, ETS allows a table to have an
heir process, which would take ownership of the table if/when the
main process terminates, so that no data is lost.
etsmgr provides a general facilty for an ETS based process to have
heir in the case of the process crashing and restarting. After a
restart, the new process can take back the ownership of the table.
portcl helps one create Erlang ports based on Tcl scripts. This
enables an Erlang application to run external Tcl/Tk scripts, such as
a GUI or dashboard, and communicate with it as if it’s another Erlang
The project can be found in the portcl project repo
