The OTP group has worked like beavers on the trace functionality
in this release. It's propably the docs in the Getting Started Guide
that's broken. Proper docs in the manpage for module 'dbg' as well as
the man page for module 'erlang' which describes all BIFs.
see the trace/3 BIF, trace_info/2, trace_pattern/2 BIF's

Great stuff.
