NAME

       DROP TYPE - remove a data type

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  TYPE  will  remove a user-defined data type.  Only the owner of a
       type can remove it.

PARAMETERS

       name   The name (optionally  schema-qualified)  of  the  data  type  to
              remove.

       CASCADE
              Automatically  drop  objects  that  depend  on the type (such as
              table columns, functions, operators).

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

EXAMPLES

       To remove the data type box:

       DROP TYPE box;

COMPATIBILITY

       This  command  is  similar  to  the  corresponding  command  in the SQL
       standard, but note that the CREATE  TYPE  command  and  the  data  type
       extension mechanisms in PostgreSQL differ from the SQL standard.
