NAME
       DROP INDEX - Removes existing indexes from a database

SYNOPSIS
       DROP INDEX index_name [, ...]



   INPUTS
       index_name
              The name of an index to remove.

              database.

DESCRIPTION
       DROP INDEX drops an existing index from the database system. To execute
       this command you must be the owner of the index.

   NOTES
       DROP INDEX is a Postgres language extension.

       Refer to CREATE INDEX [create_index(l)] for information on how to
       create indexes.

USAGE
       This command will remove the title_idx index:

           DROP INDEX title_idx;



COMPATIBILITY
   SQL92
       SQL92 defines commands by which to access a generic relational
       database.  Indexes are an implementation-dependent feature and hence
       there are no index-specific commands or definitions in the SQL92
       language.
