That seems reasonable. But it would be nice to have the type<br>information available to enable tools like dialyzer to check<br>implementation against spec where appropriate. Even if you think actually<br>giving type signatures for functions is too much work for not enough
<br>benefit, having the types defined so that everyone used the same ones<br>in their own documentation, would be very helpful.<br></blockquote></div><br>I just stumbled on this: the latest erl_parse.yrl contains some stuff related to adding type annotations to record definitions and specifying function type signatures. It doesn't seem to be functional yet - at least when I try it I get some internal crashes in erl_parse. So I suppose it's something coming in R12.
