type \? for a list of all the \ commands.. one of them will give you how to
list the DB's and another will show you how to list the tables.. I know it's
kinda different.. I come from a SQL7 world..

Hello, I'm a mysql user who's trying to learn postgres. How would I
explore which databases or tables are available for use?

If I were using mysql, I would try something like this:

mysql> show databases;
mysql> use test;
mysql> show tables;

How would I accomplish something like this in postgres?
