DO executes an anonymous code block, or in other words a transient anonymous function in a procedural language.
The code block is treated as though it were the body of a function with no parameters, returning void . It is parsed and executed a single time.
The optional LANGUAGE clause can be written either before or after the code block.
The procedural language code to be executed. This must be specified as a string literal, just as in CREATE FUNCTION . Use of a dollar-quoted literal is recommended.
The name of the procedural language the code is written in. If omitted, the default is plpgsql .
The procedural language to be used must already have been installed into the current database by means of CREATE LANGUAGE . plpgsql is installed by default, but other languages are not.
The user must have USAGE privilege for the procedural language, or must be a superuser if the language is untrusted. This is the same privilege requirement as for creating a function in the language.
