Subj:   Re: Populating Explain output to a Table.
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  For some performance analysis comparison tests we need the SQL Explain output to be stored to a table. Has anyone tried this or something similar before?  

If you don't mind writing a little code, you can do this in C or Perl. Here's some pseudocode:

declare cursor E for Explain results;
prepare "explain ...";
open E;
for each row fetched from E
   insert E into another table
end for;
close E;

Of course, once it's in the table, you have to parse it, so maybe QCD would be better after all.
