Tutorial - Refactoring and Analysis with RefactorErl

RefactorErl is a source code analyser and transformer tool aimed at refactoring Erlang software. The tool itself is written in Erlang with a  unique approach: semantic analysis results are stored in a Mnesia database to avoid repeated analysis of the same source code, and simple, syntax-based manipulations are available that hide the details of handling separators, comments, and code layout.

This 90 minute tutorial introduces the main features of RefactorErl: how you can use it simply as a refactoring tool, and how analysis results can help you during software development and maintenance.
