I came across this thread from five years ago:


Was a bug report raised? If not, I'd like to raise one please :-)

1. erlang:get_module_info/1 and erlang:get_module_info/2 need to be
    documented in the ERTS manual.

2. The documentation for module_info/0 and module_info/1 need to clarify
    that they will always return info for the current version of a loaded
    module, rather than the version that is active for the caller.

3. Can #2 above be fixed so that it returns data related to the active
    module, rather than the current version?

Many thanks
