Subject [GitHub] drill issue #570: DRILL-4834
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2016 20:20:24 GMT
Github user daveoshinsky commented on the issue:

    The initial set of check-ins as of 8/16/2016 demonstrates use of a new one-size-fits-all
VARDECIMAL type, initially only to support variable width BINARY decimal columns from Parquet
files (see DRILL-4184).   For now, the new VARDECIMAL type exists alongside all of the other
decimal types.  If this change looks good, we can eventually clean up the decimal logic by
deprecating all of the other (fixed width) decimal types, and use VARDECIMAL only.  The Cast
behavior may be somewhat strange at present (it was seen to cast from an int to VARDECIMAL
via FLOAT8).  A unit test with some test data is included.
