RULE Problem with pseudo relations OLD/NEW


I use Postgresql 7.2.1 on Debian Linux 3.0r1.
I have tried to create a RULE exactly as described in the "Postgresq l Programmers Manual". Code:

CREATE RULE foo_rule AS ON UPDATE TO foo WHERE  NEW.footx t  != OLD.footxt
      DO UPDATE gaga SET NEW.foodate = CURRENT_TIMESTA MP;

Then I receive the error message:

ERROR:  parser : parse error at or near "NEW&qu ot;

I tried different ways, but it never created the rule. One time it gave me the error message, that the relation *NEW* doesn't exist...
What's wrong? How can I work with the pseudo relations NEW or OLD, so that postgresql accepts it?

Thanks in advance for any help!
