Seeing Anthony R’s post I just noticed that there’s nowadays also a search field in http://www.erlang.org/erldoc.
Never saw that before, anyway it contains types.

Hey Ola,

`diff -y otp_src_R1{4,6}B02/lib/stdlib/doc/src/gb_trees.xml | less` shows that type information (and argument names) were removed moving from R14B02 to R16B02.

Maybe someone can hint to where this information was moved? as I hope^Wbelieve it didn't just got trashed.

erldocs only provides a different compiled documentation. The source files are still just those found under doc/src/*.xml and maintained by Ericsson/the community.
Sorry but you (well, we both) will have to s/R16/R14/ the URL for now…

Excellent news,

Thanks Pierre for your work to keep erldocs updated, it is one of my top-10 links!

A question, is there a reason for the documentation of newer Erlang/OTP versions not to provide type information?
For instance R14B02 do provide that, in yellow boxes. Compare

The first link shows that the function argument should be of type gb_tree() but the latter not.

http://erldocs.com is a fast and accessible alternative to the official Erlang/OTP documentation.
Originally developed by Dale Harvey, it was no longer supported since the release of R15B.

I recently took over erldocs.com<http://erldocs.com> and the erldocs GitHub project, fixed some issues and compiled documentation for all Erlang/OTP versions. The website is now hosted on GitHub gh-pages as it is only static files (thank you GitHub, that's amazing!) and back on tracks!

Go check another Erlang doc at http://erldocs.com/
Go check the code                at https://github.com/fenollp/erldocs
