Syntax

SHOW COLLATION
    [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

Description

The output from SHOW COLLATION includes all available collations. The LIKE clause, if present on its own, indicates which collation names to match. The WHERE and LIKE clauses can be given to select rows using more general conditions, as discussed in Extended SHOW.

The same information can be queried from the Information Schema COLLATIONS table.

See Setting Character Sets and Collations for details on specifying the collation at the server, database, table and column levels.

Example

SHOW COLLATION LIKE 'latin1%';
