Subject correct way of saving data to file in C++, 1.8.2 api
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2017 12:00:36 GMT
I'm trying to modify the first example in the c++ tutorial:
http://avro.apache.org/docs/1.8.1/api/cpp/html/index.html (note: docs for
c++,1.8.2 are not working for me)
I'm trying to write to a file. For this I modify the example from 

    std::auto_ptr<avro::OutputStream> *out = avro::memoryOutputStream();*
    avro::EncoderPtr e = avro::binaryEncoder();
    c::cpx c1;
    c1.re = 1.0;
    c1.im = 2.13;
    avro::encode(*e, c1);

     std::auto_ptr<avro::OutputStream> *outFile =
     avro::EncoderPtr e = avro::binaryEncoder();
     c::cpx c1;
     c1.re = 1.0;
     c1.im = 2.13;
     avro::encode(*e, c1);
*     outFile->flush();*

I get a file "filetest.db" which I can then read using C++.
However, I cannot read the resulting file using python because the following
code fails:
    from avro.datafile import DataFileReader
    from avro.io import DatumReader
    reader = DataFileReader(open("filetest.db", "rb"), DatumReader())
 UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0x8f in position 2:
invalid start byte

My guess is my C++ code is wrong, but I'm can't find any (recent)
documentation on what is the correct way of saving things to a file when
using C++.
