table row analysis

With varchar and TEXT columns off-loading to overflow pages, it is not easy to really understand how a table row is actually made. I mean how to know the exact composition of a row, colum by column. For example: column `foo` takes 20 bytes in the row, among which is a pointer that points to an overflow page.

Is it possible to retrieve such information ?
