db2_columns question

Post by dzarder » Wed Nov 07, 2012 5:03 pm

I am trying to use the db2_columns function to retrieve info about the columns in one of my database tables. I can retrieve most of the info I need except for the column descriptions. This would correspond to the "Field text" data returned by the DSPFFD CL command. Does anyone know if there is a PHP function available that I could use to retrieve these column descriptions? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure there isn't. I was working on code that uses xtoolkit and parses response from dspffd or dspfd whatever it's called but I got swamped with too many other things and it's not finished.
