NAME
createlang - install a PostgreSQL procedural language SYNOPSIS
createlang [connection-option...] langname [dbname] createlang [connection-option...] --list | -l [dbname] DESCRIPTION
createlang is a utility for adding a procedural language to a PostgreSQL database. createlang is just a wrapper around the CREATE EXTENSION (CREATE_EXTENSION(7)) SQL command. Caution createlang is deprecated and may be removed in a future PostgreSQL release. Direct use of the CREATE EXTENSION command is recommended instead. OPTIONS
createlang accepts the following command-line arguments: langname Specifies the name of the procedural language to be installed. (This name is lower-cased.) [-d] dbname, [--dbname=]dbname Specifies the database to which the language should be added. The default is to use the database with the same name as the current system user. -e, --echo Display SQL commands as they are executed. -l, --list Show a list of already installed languages in the target database. -V, --version Print the createlang version and exit. -?, --help Show help about createlang command line arguments, and exit. createlang also accepts the following command-line arguments for connection parameters: -h host, --host=host Specifies the host name of the machine on which the server is running. If the value begins with a slash, it is used as the directory for the Unix domain socket. -p port, --port=port Specifies the TCP port or local Unix domain socket file extension on which the server is listening for connections. -U username, --username=username User name to connect as. -w, --no-password Never issue a password prompt. If the server requires password authentication and a password is not available by other means such as a .pgpass file, the connection attempt will fail. This option can be useful in batch jobs and scripts where no user is present to enter a password. -W, --password Force createlang to prompt for a password before connecting to a database. This option is never essential, since createlang will automatically prompt for a password if the server demands password authentication. However, createlang will waste a connection attempt finding out that the server wants a password. In some cases it is worth typing -W to avoid the extra connection attempt. ENVIRONMENT
PGDATABASE, PGHOST, PGPORT, PGUSER Default connection parameters This utility, like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the environment variables supported by libpq (see Section 31.14, "Environment Variables", in the documentation). DIAGNOSTICS
Most error messages are self-explanatory. If not, run createlang with the --echo option and see the respective SQL command for details. Also, any default connection settings and environment variables used by the libpq front-end library will apply. NOTES
Use droplang(1) to remove a language. EXAMPLES
To install the language pltcl into the database template1: $ createlang pltcl template1 Note that installing the language into template1 will cause it to be automatically installed into subsequently-created databases as well. SEE ALSO

NAME
reindexdb - reindex a PostgreSQL database SYNOPSIS
reindexdb [ connection-option... ] [ --table | -t table ] [ --index | -i index ] [ dbname ] reindexdb [ connection-option... ] [ --all | -a ] reindexdb [ connection-option... ] [ --system | -s ] [ dbname ] DESCRIPTION
reindexdb is a utility for rebuilding indexes in a PostgreSQL database. reindexdb is a wrapper around the SQL command REINDEX [reindex(7)]. There is no effective difference between reindexing databases via this utility and via other methods for accessing the server. OPTIONS
reindexdb accepts the following command-line arguments: -a --all Reindex all databases. [-d] dbname [--dbname] dbname Specifies the name of the database to be reindexed. If this is not specified and -a (or --all) is not used, the database name is read from the environment variable PGDATABASE. If that is not set, the user name specified for the connection is used. -e --echo Echo the commands that reindexdb generates and sends to the server. -i index --index index Recreate index only. -q --quiet Do not display progress messages. -s --system Reindex database's system catalogs. -t table --table table Reindex table only. reindexdb also accepts the following command-line arguments for connection parameters: -h host --host host Specifies the host name of the machine on which the server is running. If the value begins with a slash, it is used as the directory for the Unix domain socket. -p port --port port Specifies the TCP port or local Unix domain socket file extension on which the server is listening for connections. -U username --username username User name to connect as. -w --no-password Never issue a password prompt. If the server requires password authentication and a password is not available by other means such as a .pgpass file, the connection attempt will fail. This option can be useful in batch jobs and scripts where no user is present to enter a password. -W --password Force reindexdb to prompt for a password before connecting to a database. This option is never essential, since reindexdb will automatically prompt for a password if the server demands password authentica- tion. However, reindexdb will waste a connection attempt finding out that the server wants a password. In some cases it is worth typing -W to avoid the extra connection attempt. ENVIRONMENT
PGDATABASE PGHOST PGPORT PGUSER Default connection parameters This utility, like most other PostgreSQL utilities, also uses the environment variables supported by libpq (see in the documentation). DIAGNOSTICS
In case of difficulty, see REINDEX [reindex(7)] and psql(1) for discussions of potential problems and error messages. The database server must be running at the targeted host. Also, any default connection settings and environment variables used by the libpq front-end library will apply. NOTES
reindexdb might need to connect several times to the PostgreSQL server, asking for a password each time. It is convenient to have a ~/.pgpass file in such cases. See in the documentation for more information. EXAMPLES
To reindex the database test: $ reindexdb test To reindex the table foo and the index bar in a database named abcd: $ reindexdb --table foo --index bar abcd SEE ALSO
