[erlang-questions] definition of iolist
Fri Aug 31 14:09:37 CEST 2007
The documentation often says this:
iolist = [char() | binary() | iolist()]
a binary is allowed as the tail of the list
This says to me that an iolist is a list whose members can be characters,
binaries or iolists. In which case it is automatic that a binary can be the
tail of the list. So what is the point of the comment?
