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.

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.
