Replace or Modify Process State

Given a process state using the following record, how could we modify one of the record fields?

Better eunit failure output with unite and `assertEqual`

Problem: an eunit test was using ?assertMatch over a large datastructure and the output was truncated and impossible to debug. The failure was:
