SHOW TABLES Help


Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

Hi all

I have the following

Code: [Select]<?php
$sql = "SHOW TABLES";
$result = mysql_query($sql);

while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
echo "Table: {$row[0]}n
";
}
?>
Which outputs

Code: [Select]Table: admins
Table: users
Table: people
This is great, but I wonder if it's possible to do these 2 things;

1: Rather than displaying the table name such as "admins", it would display the "table comments", so it would look like

Code: [Select]Table: Table of administrators
Table: Table of site users
Table: Table of people
2: Is it possible to tell it to exclude specified tables, such as not displaying the "admins" table? So if I excluded the "admins" table it would finally look like

Code: [Select]Table: Table of site users
Table: Table of people
Any help would be great, been searching Google for ages now with no luck

Thanks
