This is encoded in the atttypmod field (see PQfmod).  I'd recommend
using format_type() to decode the info, but if you don't mind possibly
having to change your code from time to time, you could just wire
knowledge of the interpretation of typmod into your code.

In future, kindly be more selective about the lists you cross-post to.
I generally make a practice of ignoring questions posted to the bugs
list, for example.
