`Nbpm` is a lightweight Elixir module that provides a simplified implementation of the Erlang Port Mapper Daemon (EPMD) protocol. It enables basic functionality for mapping Erlang node names to network ports. This module is designed as a convenient alternative to a full EPMD implementation, making it easier to facilitate communication between Erlang nodes.

## Features

- `Mix.Release` compatibility.
- Ability to specify port number in the node name.
- Hash-Based Port from node name.

## Installation

To use Nbpm in your Elixir project, add it as a dependency in your `mix.exs` file:

def deps do
    {:nbpm, "~> 0.2.0"}

Execute `mix nbpm.install`

This will add `-start_epmd false -epmd_module Elixir.Nbpm` to `ELIXIR_ERL_OPTIONS` in files `rel/` and `rel/env.bat.eex`
