Can't find anything covering this in the documentation either. trace/0 also seems to be in none of the standard modules, for example when I get a list of all available modules in a plain interactive eclipse:

Hi Victor,

trace/0 and debug/0 are not actually predicates, they are commands interpreted 
by the interactive toplevel.  trace/1 is in principle the correct predicate to 
use, but in an embedded situation you have to load any development tools 
explicitly beforehand.

You can use either the command line tools or the graphical tools.  For 
reference, I have summarized the necessary steps on our wiki at

Let me know if anything is unclear!
