Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-11935) Add support for arithmetic operators
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2018 14:27:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-11935?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16634094#comment-16634094
] 

Jeremiah Jordan commented on CASSANDRA-11935:
---------------------------------------------

Any math involving floats or doubles is lossy. Is it any more lossy than float+float=float
or double+double=double?  What behavior do you think we should have?  I think this is more
desirable than just throwing an exception and forcing people to add casts, as this is the
cast they would add for the best resolution, and there are other worse ways you could add
casts.

> The goal of this ticket is to add support for arithmetic operators:
> * {{-}}: Change the sign of the argument
> * {{+}}: Addition operator
> * {{-}}: Minus operator
> * {{*}}: Multiplication operator
> * {{/}}: Division operator
> * {{%}}: Modulo operator
> This ticket we should focus on adding operator only for numeric types to keep the scope
as small as possible. Dates and string operations will be adressed in follow up tickets.
> The operation precedence should be:
> # {{*}}, {{/}}, {{%}}
> # {{+}}, {{-}}
> Some implicit data conversion should be performed when operations are performed on different
types (e.g. double + int).
