'int8' is not always OK, 'bigint' seems to be more reliable instead.

Dear Bug Killer,

I have a bug to report.

As we know, for PostgreSQL, the data type 'bigint' can also be called 'int8'. Ideally, they should be identical.

But, when I create a table called XXX, if I define a column's type as 'bigint', it's Okay. Otherwise, if I choose 'int8' instead, when I try to make use of the command,


it will always fail, telling me that

"RROR:  copy: line 1, Bad int8 external representation "xxxxxxxxxxx


Would this be revised?
