About

An acronym for "Structured Query Language" (it's not the name of a specific DBMS product), SQL can be used in relational database management systems (RDBMS) to query, update, delete, and insert data as well as modify the structure of the database. It can also be used to manage schemas and data access privileges. To get better answers, a tag for the DBMS being used should also be added (i.e., oracle, postgresql, sql-server).
