About SHOW

You are viewing an old version of this article. View the current version here.

SHOW has many forms that provide information about databases, tables, columns, or status information about the server. These include:

    LIKE 'pattern'
  | WHERE expr

If the syntax for a given SHOW statement includes a LIKE 'pattern' part, 'pattern' is a string that can contain the SQL "%" and "_" wildcard characters. The pattern is useful for restricting statement output to matching values.

Several SHOW statements also accept a WHERE clause that provides more flexibility in specifying which rows to display. See Extended Show.
