Manual pages:
$ man 4 app (although only man 5 app works for me)
$ man 3 application

You can get Erlang manual by using "erl -man Something", where
Something is an Erlang-related thing you are looking for. This saves
you from remembering numbers and getting unexpected results. Compare
in your shell:

$ man file
$ erl -man file
