NAME

       DROP LANGUAGE - remove a procedural language

SYNOPSIS

       DROP [ PROCEDURAL ] LANGUAGE [ IF EXISTS ] name [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP  LANGUAGE  removes  the  definition  of  a  previously  registered
       procedural language. You must be  a  superuser  or  the  owner  of  the
       language to use DROP LANGUAGE.

PARAMETERS

       IF EXISTS
              Do  not  throw an error if the language does not exist. A notice
              is issued in this case.

       name   The name  of  an  existing  procedural  language.  For  backward
              compatibility, the name can be enclosed by single quotes.

       CASCADE
              Automatically  drop objects that depend on the language (such as
              functions in the language).

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

EXAMPLES

       This command removes the procedural language plsample:

       DROP LANGUAGE plsample;

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no DROP LANGUAGE statement in the SQL standard.
