sp_dir - Procedure to list database objects

,

Lists objects from database.
Similar to 'dir' command from DOS 🙂

Typical usage
sp_dir 't' 'order*', 1     - returns list of all tables whose name start with 'order' plus their columns and data types
sp_dir 'p' 'custom*_sp' -  returns list of all stored procedures whose name start with 'custom' and end up with '_sp'

For list of all options please see procedure.
This is just version 0.5. There is more to follow, of course, if you like this.

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_dir @switch varchar(10) = NULL, @wildcard varchar(30) = NULL, @ExInfo bit = 0 AS

/*

'D' - List of Default or DEFAULT constraint
'F' - List of FOREIGN KEY constraint
'L' - List of Logs  (??? who knows what is this supposed to show?)
'P' - List of Stored procedure
'PK' - List of PRIMARY KEY constraint (type is K)
'RF' - List of Replication filter stored procedure 
'TR' - List of Trigger
'UQ' - List of UNIQUE constraint (type is K)
