13.7.5.29 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 13.7.5.21, “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 20.31, “Extensions to SHOW Statements”.

character_set_client is the session value of the character_set_client system variable when the routine was created. collation_connection is the session value of the collation_connection system variable when the routine was created. Database Collation is the collation of the database with which the routine is associated.
