LOAD(7)                          SQL Commands                          LOAD(7)



NAME
       LOAD - load a shared library file


SYNOPSIS
       LOAD 'filename'


DESCRIPTION
       This  command  loads  a  shared  library  file into the PostgreSQL server's address space. If the file has been
       loaded already, the command does nothing. Shared library files  that  contain  C  functions  are  automatically
       loaded whenever one of their functions is called.  Therefore, an explicit LOAD is usually only needed to load a
       library that modifies the server's behavior through ''hooks'' rather than providing a set of functions.

       The file name is specified in the same way as for shared library names in CREATE FUNCTION [create_function(7)];
       in  particular,  one  can  rely on a search path and automatic addition of the system's standard shared library
       file name extension. See in the documentation for more information on this topic.


       Non-superusers can only apply LOAD to library files located in $libdir/plugins/ -- the specified  filename  must
       begin with exactly that string. (It is the database administrator's responsibility to ensure that only ''safe''
       libraries are installed there.)

COMPATIBILITY
       LOAD is a PostgreSQL extension.
