Im porting my programs from mySQL to PG.
mySQL supports  a query "DESCRIBE tablename fieldname" , that provides a
description of a specific table field.

Is there such an equivalent in PG?
"\d tablename" gives description for all the fields in the table,
however I need to find
out a description for a specific field only.
