If we want to remove a table along with its definition, data, and partitions, then we need to use the DROP command. This command will delete complete table along with its data and partitions information.
Now we will create a script oracle_08.sh to drop the table:
#!/bin/bash sqlplus user1/Test123 <<MY_QUERY set serveroutput on; drop table Writers; select * from Writers; MY_QUERY
After executing this script, your table gets deleted. We have written the select statement to check whether the table gets deleted or not.
Save the script and run it as follows:
$ chmod +x oracle_08.sh $ ./oracle_08.sh
The output will be:
