Hmm. This looks like it probably translates to a query on PG's
pg_class, pg_attribute, and pg_type system catalogs, which you can find
but I have no idea where to look for equivalent documentation on MS SQL.
BTW, I'd judge that this is emitting something pretty close to the
display produced by psql's "\d table". You might care to start psql
with -E switch and see what SQL queries it uses to collect the info
for \d. It'd be a good starting point anyway.
