Data Definition Language (DDL)
DDL statements allow users to run commands and administrative operations on the System. You can execute DDL commands over a database connection to manage nodes, storage spaces, tables and views, system configuration, users and groups, underlying storage segments, and more.
Quoting Identifiers: In all DDL statements, identifiers not in double quotes must begin with a letter and can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores. Identifiers are the names of databases, tables, nodes, etc. They will internally be converted to lower-case. Identifiers in double quotes can contain any characters besides newline and carriage return, can begin with any character, and will not be case-adjusted. To use an identifier with the same name as any keyword, it must be in double quotes.
String literals must be enclosed in single quotes. A single quote within a string can be escaped as ". A string literal can be preceded by e to enable additional escape sequences (ex: e'\n').
