Subject Re: Text data structures-optimized layout in Arrow
Date Sun, 03 Mar 2019 03:50:12 GMT
Hi Edmon,
This sound interesting, I'm not aware of any optimized text memory layout
beyond our standard string layout.   Are there more details about the work
you are doing?  It is a little bit hard to tell if this is a good fit for
Arrow from your description.
