I've never used it myself, but looking at the source there's a
dbprtype() call in there, but it appears to be slightly different from
the C version. You need to call

	$type = $dbh->dbprtype($colid);

where $colid is the column number.

(The reason I had to look at the source is that I think this was
implemented by someone who sent me a patch).
