as returned by px_new().
fielddesc is an array containing one element for each
field specification. A field specification is an array itself with
either two or three elements.The first element is always a string value
used as the name of the field. It may not be larger than ten
characters. The second element contains the field type which is one of
the constants listed in the table Constants for field types.
In the case of a character field or bcd field, you will have to provide
a third element specifying the length respectively the precesion of the
field. If your field specification contains blob fields, you will have
to make sure to either make the field large enough for all field values
to fit or specify a blob file with
px_set_blob_file() for storing the blobs. If this is
not done the field data is truncated.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
