The list of functions returned can be customized based on the pattern.

It can be an exact match:

SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE 'ABS';

     name      |     type
---------------+---------------
ABS            |SCALAR

A wildcard for exactly one character:

SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE 'A__';

     name      |     type
---------------+---------------
AVG            |AGGREGATE
ABS            |SCALAR

A wildcard matching zero or more characters:

SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE 'A%';

     name      |     type
---------------+---------------
AVG            |AGGREGATE
ABS            |SCALAR
ACOS           |SCALAR

ATAN           |SCALAR
ATAN2          |SCALAR
ASCII          |SCALAR

Or of course, a variation of the above:

SHOW FUNCTIONS LIKE '%DAY%';

     name      |     type
