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.
