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.
