Overview

This is a simple wrapper around the (slightly modified) telnet server from Jungerl. It makes it easy to add a telnet interface to an application.

Installation

Just download or clone and run make.

Usage

Look at erltif.erl for the API.

Start erltif app.

1> application:start(erltif).
2> erltif:add_server(server1, 7999).
Added server [server1] on port 7999
Servers:[{server1,<0.43.0>},
         {{<0.43.0>,port},7999},
         {<0.43.0>,server1},
         {{<0.43.0>,commands},[]},
         {{<0.43.0>,clients},[]}]
ok
3> erltif:add_command(server1, mem, "Erlang memory usage", erlang, memory, 0).
Added command [mem] to server [server1]
