MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  SHOW PROCEDURE CODE Syntax SHOW PROCEDURE CODE Syntax


This statement is a MySQL extension that is available only for servers that have been built with debugging support. It displays a representation of the internal implementation of the named stored procedure. A similar statement, SHOW FUNCTION CODE, displays information about stored functions (see Section, “SHOW FUNCTION CODE Syntax”).

To use either statement, you must have the global SELECT privilege.

If the named routine is available, each statement produces a result set. Each row in the result set corresponds to one instruction in the routine. The first column is Pos, which is an ordinal number beginning with 0. The second column is Instruction, which contains an SQL statement (usually changed from the original source), or a directive which has meaning only to the stored-routine handler.

mysql> DELIMITER //
    -> BEGIN
    ->   DECLARE fanta INT DEFAULT 55;
    ->   DROP TABLE t2;
    ->   LOOP
    ->     INSERT INTO t3 VALUES (fanta);
    ->     END LOOP;
    ->   END//
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

| Pos | Instruction                            |
|   0 | set fanta@0 55                         |
|   1 | stmt 9 "DROP TABLE t2"                 |
|   2 | stmt 5 "INSERT INTO t3 VALUES (fanta)" |
|   3 | jump 2                                 |
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

In this example, the nonexecutable BEGIN and END statements have disappeared, and for the DECLARE variable_name statement, only the executable part appears (the part where the default is assigned). For each statement that is taken from source, there is a code word stmt followed by a type (9 means DROP, 5 means INSERT, and so on). The final row contains an instruction jump 2, meaning GOTO instruction #2.
