Hi,
I am new to Erlang and I am trying to learn to use it to manipulate XML.
I am lookng into the source files and see this definition:

'#text#'(Text) ->
    export_text(Text).

I cannot find any reference material to explain what this means, the
'#text#'(Text).

Obviously it is defining a function, but what is how do you invoke this
function? Is '#text#' some kind of macro substitution?

Pointers to the correct documentation would be appreciated.
