   Parameters:
       driver=name
           Name of database driver

       database=name
           Name of database

DESCRIPTION

       db.droptable drops an attribute table.  If the -f force flag is not given then nothing  is
       removed, instead a preview of the action to be taken is printed.

NOTES

       db.droptable  is  a  front-end  to  db.execute to allow easier usage. To some extent it is
       verified if the table is connected to a vector map to avoid accidental table removal.

EXAMPLES

   Removing an attribute table from default database
       # show default database
       db.connect -p
       # show available tables
       db.tables -p
       # this will show what would happen
       db.droptable table=sometable
       # actually drop the table
       db.droptable -f table=sometable

   Removing an attribute table from given database
       db.droptable allows defining optionally driver and database options different from default
       connection settings (db.connect -p).
       # drop the table from SQLite database
       db.droptable -f table=sometable driver=sqlite database=/opt/sqlite.db
