DROP OPERATOR

Purpose

Use the DROP OPERATOR statement to drop a user-defined operator.

See Also:

Prerequisites

The operator must be in your schema or you must have the DROP ANY OPERATOR system privilege.

Syntax

drop_operator::=

Description of drop_operator.gif follows
Description of the illustration drop_operator.gif

Semantics

schema

Specify the schema containing the operator. If you omit schema, then Oracle Database assumes the operator is in your own schema.

operator

Specify the name of the operator to be dropped.

FORCE

Specify FORCE to drop the operator even if it is currently being referenced by one or more schema objects, such as indextypes, packages, functions, procedures, and so on. The database marks any such dependent objects INVALID. Without FORCE, you cannot drop an operator if any schema objects reference it.

Example

Dropping a User-Defined Operator: Example The following statement drops the operator eq_op:

DROP OPERATOR eq_op;

Because the FORCE clause is not specified, this operation will fail if any of the bindings of this operator are referenced by an indextype.
