I'll just add a hint for reference:

erl(1) takes a -man parameter, so you can just write 'erl -man ets' to get  
yourself into $PAGER with the documentation. This is mighty effective when  
having to look up documentation. Beware, that Erlang has a number of  
inconsistencies in the libraries. This is probably due to the way Erlang  
was developed over time. Hence, one must be extremely careful and read the  
documentation before jumping to conclusions.
