mnesia:dump_to_textfile(Filename)

Dumps all local tables of a mnesia system into a text file which can 
then be edited (by means of a normal text editor) and then later be 
reloaded with mnesia:load_textfile/1. Only use this function for 
educational purposes. Use other functions to deal with real backups.

This function hopefully helps you futher.
