Good question.  I guess it's our fault rather than Erlang/OTP's because 
the only thing we have written on typer is a paper describing it.

However, note that typer is not designed to have any Erlang API; instead 
it's a shell command.  For those interested in using it, a short 
description about its options can be obtained by typing:

	typer --help

Disclaimer: currently, we do not have any test suite for typer.

We will try to write a test suite and proper documentation for the tool 
for R13B04.  But we would not mind if some user beats us to it.  We also 
welcome user feedback.
