NAME

       DROP_SCHEMA - remove a schema

SYNOPSIS

       DROP SCHEMA [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP SCHEMA removes schemas from the database.

       A schema can only be dropped by its owner or a superuser. Note that the
       owner can drop the schema (and thereby all contained objects) even if
       he does not own some of the objects within the schema.

PARAMETERS

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

       name
           The name of a schema.

       CASCADE
           Automatically drop objects (tables, functions, etc.) that are
           contained in the schema.

       RESTRICT
           Refuse to drop the schema if it contains any objects. This is the
           default.

EXAMPLES

       To remove schema mystuff from the database, along with everything it
       contains:

           DROP SCHEMA mystuff CASCADE;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP SCHEMA is fully conforming with the SQL standard, except that the
       standard only allows one schema to be dropped per command, and apart
       from the IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.
