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.

           Note
           As of PostgreSQL 9.1, most procedural languages have been made into
           "extensions", and should therefore be removed with DROP EXTENSION
           (DROP_EXTENSION(7)) not 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.
