All you need to do is install mysql 5 in any box, run the dump script,
then execute one query:
LOWER(table_name) AS 'Table',
LOWER(column_name) AS 'Column',
ordinal_position As 'Ordinal Position',
column_default AS 'Default',
UPPER(data_type) AS 'Type',
character_maximum_length AS 'Max Len',
character_octet_length AS 'Octet Len',
numeric_precision AS 'Precision',
numeric_scale AS 'Numeric Scale',
is_nullable AS 'Null',
character_set_name AS 'Character Set',
collation_name AS 'Collation'
WHERE table_schema = 'yourdbname'
ORDER BY table_name,'Ordinal Position';
and there are all your tables with all their columns. Absent a
modelling tool, there's not a quicker way to get that info.
