++ Very useful node, thanks gmax.

For the sake of portability it might also be useful to note that ANSI SQL-92 provides a standard for querying table schema information:

select TABLE_NAME from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES

And to give an idea of what else is available via INFORMATION_SCHEMA;
SCHEMATA DOMAINS VIEWS COLUMNS TABLE_PRIVILEGES COLUMN_PRIVILEGES USAGE_PRIVILEGES DOMAIN_CONSTRAINTS TABLE_CONSTRAINTS REFERENTIAL_CONSTRAINTS CHECK_CONSTRAINTS KEY_COLUMN_USAGE ASSERTIONS VIEW_TABLE_USAGE VIEW_COLUMN_USAGE CONSTRAINT_TABLE_USAGE CONSTRAINT_COLUMN_USAGE CONSTRAINT_DOMAIN_USAGE

    [holli]: but then you DO give a fuck
    [1nickt]: I don;t think beliefs should be down-voted, just behaviours.
    [james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
    [james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
    [james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
    [holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
    [erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
    [james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
    [james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
    [erix]: teleology -- I've never understood why that was thunk up
