DROP TABLE()			 SQL Commands			  DROP TABLE()

       DROP TABLE - remove a table

       DROP TABLE [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

       DROP  TABLE  removes  tables  from  the	database.   Only its owner may
       destroy a table. To empty a table of rows without destroying the table,
       use DELETE [delete(5)] or TRUNCATE [truncate(l)].

       DROP TABLE always removes any indexes, rules, triggers, and constraints
       that exist for the target table.	 However, to drop a table that is ref‐
       erenced by a view or a foreign-key constraint of another table, CASCADE
       must be specified. (CASCADE will remove a dependent view entirely,  but
       in the foreign-key case it will only remove the foreign-key constraint,
       not the other table entirely.)

       IF EXISTS
	      Do not throw an error if the table does not exist. A  notice  is
	      issued in this case.

       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the table to drop.

	      Automatically  drop  objects  that  depend on the table (such as

	      Refuse to drop the table if any objects depend on	 it.  This  is
	      the default.

       To destroy two tables, films and distributors:

       DROP TABLE films, distributors;

       This  command  conforms	to  the SQL standard, except that the standard
       only allows one table to be dropped per command, and apart from the  IF
       EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.

       ALTER TABLE [alter_table(5)], CREATE TABLE [create_table(l)]
