NAME

       RESET - restore the value of a run-time parameter to the default value

SYNOPSIS

       RESET configuration_parameter
       RESET ALL

DESCRIPTION

       RESET  restores  run-time  parameters  to  their  default  values. RESET is an alternative
       spelling for

       SET configuration_parameter TO DEFAULT

       Refer to SET [set(7)] for details.

       The default value is defined as the value that the parameter would have had, if no SET had
       ever been issued for it in the current session. The actual source of this value might be a
       compiled-in default, the configuration file, command-line options, or per-database or per-
       user  default  settings. This is subtly different from defining it as ``the value that the
       parameter had at session start'', because if the value came from the  configuration  file,
       it  will  be  reset  to  whatever  is specified by the configuration file now.  See in the
       documentation for details.

       The transactional behavior of RESET is the same as SET: its  effects  will  be  undone  by
       transaction rollback.

PARAMETERS

       configuration_parameter
              Name  of  a  settable run-time parameter. Available parameters are documented in in

       ALL    Resets all settable run-time parameters to default values.

EXAMPLES

       Set the timezone configuration variable to its default value:
