NAME

       DROP SCHEMA - remove a schema

SYNOPSIS

       DROP SCHEMA name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP SCHEMA removes schemas from the database.

       A schema can only be dropped by its owner or a superuser. Note that the
       owner can drop the schema (and thereby all contained objects)  even  if
       he does not own some of the objects within the schema.

PARAMETERS

       name   The name of a schema.

       CASCADE
              Automatically  drop  objects  (tables, functions, etc.) that are
              contained in the schema.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse to drop the schema if it contains any  objects.  This  is
              the default.

EXAMPLES

       To  remove  schema  mystuff from the database, along with everything it
       contains:

       DROP SCHEMA mystuff CASCADE;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP SCHEMA is fully conforming with the SQL standard, except that  the
       standard only allows one schema to be dropped per command.
