Subject [jira] [Created] (AVRO-1928) Python double/float encoding implementation should use built-in struct support for little endian

----------------------------------------

             Summary: Python double/float encoding implementation should use built-in struct
support for little endian
                 Key: AVRO-1928
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1928
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: python
    Affects Versions: 1.8.1
            Reporter: Shalabh Chaturvedi
            Priority: Minor


The encoding and decoding of double and float types in Python uses unnecessary bit operations
and packing/unpacking. Python's {{struct}} module supports little-endian encoding and could
be used directly, instead of using the big-endian and then bit-fiddling to reverse the endianness.

This could have a big impact of encoding/decoding speed of large buffers.
