Subject [jira] [Created] (ARROW-491) [C++] Add FixedWidthBinary type
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2017 00:15:26 GMT
Wes McKinney created ARROW-491:

             Summary: [C++] Add FixedWidthBinary type
                 Key: ARROW-491
             Project: Apache Arrow
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: C++
            Reporter: Wes McKinney

This would be very useful for interacting with Parquet and other data sources that use fixed-byte-width
binary types, as a more efficient version of List<UInt8>. We can resolve adding this
type to the format spec later.

[~julienledem] [~nongli] do you have an opinion about this type? Would be equivalent to FIXED_LEN_BYTE_ARRAY
in Parquet. It would be convenient to implement Decimal types on top of this
