DROP OPERATOR CLASS

Name

DROP OPERATOR CLASS -- remove an operator class

Synopsis

DROP OPERATOR CLASS name USING index_method [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

Description

DROP OPERATOR CLASS drops an existing operator class. To execute this command you must be the owner of the operator class.

Parameters

name

The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an existing operator class.

index_method

The name of the index access method the operator class is for.

CASCADE

Automatically drop objects that depend on the operator class.

RESTRICT

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

Examples

Remove the B-tree operator class widget_ops:
