       LOAD - load or reload a shared library file

       LOAD 'filename'

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

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