DROP PROCEDURE [IF EXISTS] function

Explanation

This MySQL statement deletes a stored procedure. The IF EXISTS keyword prevents error messages when the stored procedure doesn't exist. Instead, a note will be generated by MySQL, which can be displayed afterwards by executing the MySQL statement, SHOW WARNINGS. This MySQL statement requires the ALTER ROUTINE privilege for the stored procedure given, which is automatically granted to the creator of the stored procedure.
