Subj:   Re: Show table question
From:   John Hall

The SHOW TABLE doesn't use CREATETEXT or REQUESTTEXT, but reconstructs the information from the dictionary tables.

So that you get a feel for what's going on:

- Some of the Table information is taken from DBC.TVM.

- Information about the Columns can be found in DBC.TVFIELDS.

- Information about the Database can be found in DBC.DBASE.

- Index information can be found in DBC.INDEX.

- Things like SET/MULTISET, DATABLOCKSIZE and FREESPACE are kept in the Table Header and cannot be accessed via SQL.

- The size of the Table and Database is kept in DBC.DATABASESPACE.
