Subject:describe table : improvement ?
View as plain text  

when I do a "describe a_table", it displays :
| Field | Type | Null | Key | Default | Extra |

I would like to have a "Comment" that would show
  the meaning of a field. "Extra" is to be used for othe info.

I looked around at :

but could not figure out how to do what I want.

I could make a table especially for this purpose :
create table comment (field varchar, comment varchar);
but this will end into inconsistency at last [ 2 times the same field ]...

I run MySql 4.0.24

Any ideas ?

cheers my-folks !
