NAME

       LOAD - load a shared library file

SYNOPSIS

       LOAD 'filename'

DESCRIPTION

       This command loads a shared library file into the PostgreSQL server's address space. If
       the file has been loaded already, the command does nothing. Shared library files that
       contain C functions are automatically loaded whenever one of their functions is called.
       Therefore, an explicit LOAD is usually only needed to load a library that modifies the
       server's behavior through “hooks” rather than providing a set of functions.

       The file name is specified in the same way as for shared library names in CREATE FUNCTION
       (CREATE_FUNCTION(7)); in particular, one can rely on a search path and automatic addition
       of the system's standard shared library file name extension. See Section 35.9, “C-Language
       Functions”, in the documentation for more information on this topic.

       Non-superusers can only apply LOAD to library files located in $libdir/plugins/ — the
       specified filename must begin with exactly that string. (It is the database
       administrator's responsibility to ensure that only “safe” libraries are installed there.)

COMPATIBILITY

       LOAD is a PostgreSQL extension.
