Mnesia is just a database. It holds a similar position to SQL databases.
Tuples are stored using one of the fields as a key. In doesn't do any
text indexing for that you'll need to add a layer on top of mnesia. I
can't think of one off the top of my head for erlang. Someone else on
the list may know of one though.
