I'm afraid it's going to start a flame war, but still :))

PHP docs have documentation on every aspect of the language. It is
easily accessible. Just type http://php.net/mysql or
http://php.net/strstr or any of the myriad of functions that PHP
provides and you will be presented with a nicely formatted doc page. It
is cross-linked and offers sometimes invaluable information in the form
of user comments.

It is, actually, the one and only stop for any PHP programmer.

Erlang's documentation, though ample, is a pain to navigate, and at some
point it really needs those user comments
