defmodule DetsTest do
use ExUnit.Case
require Server

# Output dets table info
# Find server with ID=1234

IO.inspect rec
# Find IDs of servers sharing username = "username_210"
# Returns the array of IDs (notice the $1 saying the first field
# should be in the first place of the resulting record)

IO.puts "Found #{length(recs)} records"
IO.inspect recs
# Find all records of servers sharing username = "username_210"
# Returns the array of full records

# We turn tuples into Elixir records before display this time
IO.puts "Found #{length(recs)} records"
IO.inspect, &(Server.server(&1)))
