I just checked the documentation and the example only invoked
mnesia:change_table_frag/2, not change_table_frag/4. Are you sure you
are reading it correctly? And mnesia:change_table_frag/2 does exist.

It is true that change_table_frag/2 is not documented in the reference
manual, but the stuff in the user manual should be enough to get the
job done.

Just the documentation needs a bit more work. If you ask me, the best
way is to fire up the shell and try out creating and using a
fragmented table.

There is this article which explains things a bit more:
