NAME

       DROP OPERATOR CLASS - remove an operator class

SYNOPSIS

       DROP OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  OPERATOR CLASS drops an existing operator class.  To execute this
       command you must be the owner of the operator class.

PARAMETERS

       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an  existing  operator
              class.

       index_method
              The name of the index access method the operator class is for.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the operator class.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse  to  drop the operator class if any objects depend on it.
              This is the default.

EXAMPLES

       Remove the B-tree operator class widget_ops:

       DROP OPERATOR CLASS widget_ops USING btree;

       This command will not succeed if there are any  existing  indexes  that
       use the operator class. Add CASCADE to drop such indexes along with the
       operator class.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no DROP OPERATOR CLASS statement in the SQL standard.
