Thanks for your reply.
I had seen those document before. But it does not accurate explain the OTP.
(I am not come from english-speaking countries) Have some more explanations
or examples about this.
ie. The OTP is  like stdlib in c. Or The OTP is like Net::LDAP module in 
perl.
The OTP is write in erlang ? What is difference between BIFs and OTP?
