Guard Clause on Elixir Typespec

TIL that Elixir has some type of guard clause for typespec:

defmodule TupleMaker do
  @spec build(arg1, arg2) :: {arg1, arg2} when arg1: atom, arg2: integer | binary
  def build(arg1, arg2), do: {arg1, arg2}
end

I still prefer to use @type instead, but itโ€™s always useful to know alternatives.
