Erlang Rocks

Erlang is a general-purpose concurrent programming language. It was designed by Ericsson to support distributed, fault-tolerant, soft-real-time, non-stop applications. It supports hot swapping so code can be changed without stopping a system. One of the main reasons for using Erlang instead of other functional languages is Erlang's ability to handle concurrency and distributed programming. So why don't you try this. believe me you'll love it .

Machan does Erlang has C like syntax?

Well, Erlang is built using C.
but it is rather a functional language. No main methods like C.
But both can work very effectively together(communicating each other) where many back end systems have developed like that. The direct answer to your question is, NO it has a much different syntax than C, but if you are a C fan You will love Erlang.
