RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for drop_user (redhat section 7)

DROP USER(7)				   SQL Commands 			     DROP USER(7)

NAME
       DROP USER - remove a database user account

SYNOPSIS
       DROP USER name

DESCRIPTION
       DROP USER removes the specified user from the database.	It does not remove tables, views,
       or other objects owned by the user. If the user owns any database, an error is raised.

   PARAMETERS
       name   The name of an existing user.

DIAGNOSTICS
       DROP USER
	      The message returned if the user is successfully deleted.

       ERROR: DROP USER: user "name" does not exist
	      This message occurs if the user name is not found.

       DROP USER: user "name" owns database "name", cannot be removed
	      You must drop the database first or change its ownership.

NOTES
       Use CREATE USER [create_user(7)] to add new  users,  and  ALTER	USER  [alter_user(7)]  to
       change a user's attributes.  PostgreSQL includes a program dropuser [dropuser(1)] that has
       the same functionality as this command (in fact, it calls this command)	but  can  be  run
       from the command shell.

EXAMPLES
       To drop a user account:

       DROP USER jonathan;

COMPATIBILITY
       The  DROP USER statement is a PostgreSQL extension. The SQL standard leaves the definition
       of users to the implementation.

SEE ALSO
       CREATE USER [create_user(7)], ALTER USER [alter_user(l)], dropuser(1)
