NAME

       ALTER_TEXT_SEARCH_DICTIONARY - change the definition of a text search
       dictionary

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name (
           option [ = value ] [, ... ]
       )
       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name RENAME TO new_name
       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name OWNER TO new_owner
       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name SET SCHEMA new_schema

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY changes the definition of a text search
       dictionary. You can change the dictionary's template-specific options,
       or change the dictionary's name or owner.

       You must be the owner of the dictionary to use ALTER TEXT SEARCH
       DICTIONARY.

PARAMETERS

       name
           The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an existing text search
           dictionary.

       option
           The name of a template-specific option to be set for this
           dictionary.

       value
           The new value to use for a template-specific option. If the equal
           sign and value are omitted, then any previous setting for the
           option is removed from the dictionary, allowing the default to be
           used.

       new_name
           The new name of the text search dictionary.

       new_owner
           The new owner of the text search dictionary.

       new_schema
           The new schema for the text search dictionary.

       Template-specific options can appear in any order.

EXAMPLES

       The following example command changes the stopword list for a
       Snowball-based dictionary. Other parameters remain unchanged.

           ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_dict ( StopWords = newrussian );

       The following example command changes the language option to dutch, and
       removes the stopword option entirely.

           ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_dict ( language = dutch, StopWords );

       The following example command "updates" the dictionary's definition
       without actually changing anything.

           ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_dict ( dummy );

       (The reason this works is that the option removal code doesn't complain
       if there is no such option.) This trick is useful when changing
       configuration files for the dictionary: the ALTER will force existing
       database sessions to re-read the configuration files, which otherwise
       they would never do if they had read them earlier.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY statement in the SQL standard.
