It's a bit difficult to tell you exactly what to do as you do not 
specify which Erlang/OTP version you are using but the answer to your 
question is "Yes". Depending on your OTP version, you have two options:

  1. Include the 'syntax_tools' application in your PLT.
  2. Upgrade to a later Erlang/OTP version.
