if you're referring to the mysql client program, drop table table_name; drop database db_name; http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/drop-database.html

I'm not sure how this topic ended up on this mailing list, which is about Ruby. Can you try to find an SQL or MySQL list to discuss this on? David -- David A.

It seems a ligit question to me especially since Ruby interfaces so easily with mysql.
