SYNOPSIS
       DROP OPERATOR name ( { lefttype | NONE } , { righttype | NONE } ) [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]


DESCRIPTION

PARAMETERS
       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of an existing  operator.

       lefttype

	      operator has no left operand.

	      The data type of the operator's right operand; write NONE if the

       DROP OPERATOR ^ (integer, integer);


       Remove the left unary bitwise complement operator ~b for type bit:

       DROP OPERATOR ~ (none, bit);
