mnesia

Michał Ptaszek
I've been looking at a project which won't require large queries or
anything like that, but will require reliable maintenance of data,
preferably across multiple machines, and I think mnesia might do the trick.

The downside is that I've spent a lot more time on the funs and libraries
of erlang; I'm a bit unclear on where to start with mnesia.

Does anybody have a reference to a decent ground-up mnesia tutorial?
I succeeded in finding many mentions of it online, including some examples,
and I have the general idea that one defines a schema in a file which
erlang then loads, and that the schema is basically a set of tables ...
but I seem to get stuck beyond that point.  I'm probably just missing
something really stupid which a tutorial would walk me through.

Any proposals?

Did you already look at the Mnesia User's Guide?

http://www.erlang.org/doc/r9b/lib/mnesia-4.1/doc/html/part_frame.html


If you have, could you be a bit more specific about what
information you feel is missing?
