LOAD(7)                          SQL Commands                          LOAD(7)



NAME
       LOAD - load(7,n) or reload a shared library file(1,n)


SYNOPSIS
       LOAD 'filename'


DESCRIPTION
       This  command  loads a shared library file(1,n) into the PostgreSQL server's
       address space. If the file(1,n) had been  loaded  previously,  it  is  first
       unloaded.  This  command  is  primarily  useful  to unload and reload a
       shared library file(1,n) that has been changed since the server first loaded
       it.  To  make  use  of the shared library, function(s) in(1,8) it need to be
       declared using the CREATE FUNCTION [create_function(7)] command.

       The file(1,n) name is specified in(1,8) the same way as for shared library  names
       in(1,8) CREATE FUNCTION [create_function(7)]; in(1,8) particular, one may rely on
       a search path and automatic addition of the  system's  standard  shared
       library  file(1,n)  name  extension.  See  the section called ``User-Defined
       Functions'' in(1,8) the documentation for more information on this topic.

COMPATIBILITY
       LOAD is a PostgreSQL extension.
