Patch: Missing Erlang Mode

This patch contains the missing files for the erlang mode in the R13B04 Erlang/OTP release. Simply unpack the zip file in the directory lib/tools- under your installed otp system (usually residing in /usr/local/lib/erlang).

Compiling Erlang from source

You can build Erlang from source on your own, following the building and installation instructions. Or use the Kerl script. Kerl is a script that lets you easily build Erlang with a few commands. Follow the instructions to build.
