Practical web programming

UDP is a widely used protocol and Erlang is a great platform for different network application different kinds. Today I decided to publish small UDP echo server example. I know that UDP socket usage is very simple in Erlang, but I think somebody will find this code usefull.

Today I am going to write a brief article about Erlang gen_tcp usage. Probably the reader already has experience with sockets programming. But just to remind server architecture. First of all listening socket should be created, than server is going into accept state waiting for new connection. Once new connection is accepted server creates new thread to process incoming packets. While server waits for another connection.
