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 32.14,
       "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.
