Erlang as a Multi-language VM

Hmm. They don't seem to be fully stable projects, but the idea of compiling languages like JavaScript (see ErlyJs) and MATLAB (see Matlang in the High-performance article here) to the Erlang VM seems like an interesting strategy.

I wonder if we'll see more of this in the future.

  1. There are Reia [1] and LFE [2] also.

    Reia is Ruby/Python-like language for Erlang VM. LFE is Lisp Flavoured Erlang
