How do I list information regarding a table?

How do I list information such as the columns, their data types and the constraints present on a table? Is there a possibility to list them all together?

You can use the following query to retrieve column information for a table.

SHOW COLUMNS {FROM | IN} tbl_name [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

That will show:

  • column name
  • type
  • null or not
  • primary key or not
  • default value
  • auto increment or not
