MongoDb: Drop a Collection With runCommand

Stupidly I managed to create a collection with a space in the name. In the interactive shell various escape chars and quotes using the “db.CollectionName.drop()” solution failed to work. Since I created the blasted thing with a runCommand, I can fix it with a runCommand:

> db.runCommand( { drop : "my output" } );
{
"nIndexesWas" : 1,
"msg" : "indexes dropped for collection",
"ns" : "preNormalisation.my output",
"ok" : 1
}
