13.7.5.26 SHOW PROCEDURE STATUS Syntax

SHOW PROCEDURE STATUS
    [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

This statement is a MySQL extension. It returns characteristics of a stored procedure, such as the database, name, type, creator, creation and modification dates, and character set information. A similar statement, SHOW FUNCTION STATUS, displays information about stored functions (see Section 13.7.5.16, “SHOW FUNCTION STATUS Syntax”).

The LIKE clause, if present, indicates which procedure or function names to match. The WHERE clause can be given to select rows using more general conditions, as discussed in Section 19.18, “Extensions to SHOW Statements”.
