NAME

db.droptable - Drops an attribute table.

KEYWORDS

database, attribute table

SYNOPSIS

db.droptable
db.droptable help
db.droptable [-f] table=name [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

-f
Force removal (required for actual deletion of files)
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

table=name
Table to drop

DESCRIPTION

db.droptable drops an attribute table. If the -f force flag is not given then nothing is removed, instead a preview of the action to be taken is printed.

NOTES

db.droptable is a front-end to db.execute to allow easier usage. To some extent it is verified if the table is connected to a vector map to avoid accidential table removal.

EXAMPLE

Removing an attribute table:

# show available tables
db.tables -p

# this will show what would happen
db.droptable table=sometable

# actually drop the table
db.droptable -f sometable
