Or mirgate to Mnesia. Is there any howtos and/or tools to migrate back
and forth between sql databases and Mnesia? I'm currently playing around
with erlyweb using mysql as a backend. Having just entered 144 rows of
data manually yesterday I wouldn't want to repeat the exercise if I
decided to change over to Mnesia.
