That's because there is no documentation of it ;-)

The specs are currently taken into account by Dialyzer, and there is an 
EEP in the pipe, but we haven't submitted it yet. The spec and type 
declarations should be considered as unsupported (and undocumented) for 
now, but if you can't wait until the EEP is submitted, you can have a 
look around at the various contracts in hipe/kernel/stdlib and you will 
probably get the idea.
