[GRASS-user] Trying to rename a column

Ultimately what I am trying to do is to make a varchar(5) field be a 
varchar(8) field — but I don't see how to do this directly. So, I 
thought if I created a new varchar(8) column, copied the values of the 
varchar(5) column into it (This all worked fine); then, renamed the 
varchar(5) column to 'foo' (which also worked), then I could rename the 
varchar(8) column to what the column name was for the original 
varchar(5) column — this does NOT work. Also, I would like to delete the 
'foo' column, but I don't see how to do this.

Any suggestions?
