Subject double and float in CQL
Date Thu, 11 Aug 2011 02:48:52 GMT

I'm just getting started with CQL, and decided to do a simple test
create/insert/select thing to check that everything was working.  Most
everything seems to work, but it appears that double/floats do not work
properly.  Here's what I did:

CREATE KEYSPACE test with strategy_class = 'SimpleStrategy' and

USE test;
    key varchar PRIMARY KEY,
    value float

INSERT INTO testvals (key,value) VALUES ('k1',341.32355);
SELECT key, value FROM testvals;

The output is this:

cqlsh localhost < scripts/test.cql
 key |    value |
  k1 | @uU-B??? |

Same thing happens when I do value double.  I also tried to do this from the
python driver, gives the same weirdness:
In [2]: import cql
In [3]: con = cql.connect("localhost",keyspace="test")
In [4]: cursor = con.cursor()
In [5]: cursor.execute("SELECT * from testvals")
Out[5]: True
In [6]: for r in cursor: print r
[u'k1', '?\xf8\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00']

Any idea what's going on?
