[erlang-bugs] ets:from_dets/2 documentation error

/lib/stdlib-1.14.5/doc/html/ets.html

documentation incorrectly shows the output of
ets:from_dets(Tab,DetsTab) -> Tab.

Output is not Tab. Filling the ETS table is a side effect of the function
call.
The corrected statement is

ets:from_dets(Tab,DetsTab) -> true

(Note "error in process" if either Tab or DetsTab is not open).
