Erlnixify's purpose is to rectify a problem in Erlang. At the moment the Erlang VM has the problem that it can not react to unix signals. This renders it impossible to integrate Erlang into a basic unix environment like init.d or daemontools. This ruby project is designed to fill that void. It provides a small unix executable whose responsibility it is to capture normal unix signals and translate them into something that the erlang vm can understand.
