DROP TABLE()			 SQL Commands			  DROP TABLE()

NAME
       DROP TABLE - remove a table

SYNOPSIS
       DROP TABLE name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION
       DROP  TABLE  removes  tables  from  the	database.   Only its owner may
       destroy a table. To empty a table of rows, without destroying  the  ta‐
       ble, use DELETE.

       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.)

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

       CASCADE
	      Automatically drop objects that depend on	 the  table  (such  as
	      views).

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

EXAMPLES
       To destroy two tables, films and distributors:

       DROP TABLE films, distributors;

COMPATIBILITY
       This command conforms to the SQL standard,  except  that	 the  standard
       only allows one table to be dropped per command.

SEE ALSO
       ALTER TABLE [alter_table(7)], CREATE TABLE [create_table(l)]
