[patch] Postgres varchar length support

Reported by Mayo Jordanov | February 6th, 2008 @ 02:32 AM

Enable using :length option on Postgres varchars.

  • Length can't be specified for integers
  • If length for varchar is not specified, the length is unlimited, rather than the default 50.
  • In any other case, nil is returned for size, as was the previous default.

I've also looked at removing to_long_form, however there are slight differences between postgres and the abstract adapters. The abstract adapter is written to always insert #{type_declaration}, regardless of column being or not being primary key. The postgres version excludes #{type_declaration} when the column is serial. This may have something to do with how the default serial/PK column is generated when one is not specified, but I'm not yet familiar with the code base enough to make the decision there.
