[gdal-dev] How to add more than one column to a shapefile using ogrinfo

I have no problem to add a column to a shapefile with:

ogrinfo myfile.shp -sql "ALTER TABLE myfile ADD fieldX integer"

But if I use, the second column is not added to the file.
ogrinfo myfile.shp -sql "ALTER TABLE myfile ADD fieldX integer(3), fieldY

The shell gives me only
INFO: Open of `myfile.shp'
      using driver `ESRI Shapefile' successful.

What's wrong in my syntax?

Thank you
