Is Bigint supported by Scidb?


I only find “int, float, double, bool, string, char” in AFL tutorial.

and is the string = varchar?




I am not sure what you mean by Bigint - different languages define this differently. Sometimes bigint refers to 64-bit integers. In that case, we absolutely support “int64” as well as “uint64”.

Here’s how to ask the system for a list of datatypes:

apoliakov@scalpel:~/scidb$ iquery -aq "list('types')"

Yes “string” is roughly the same as “varchar” except SciDB does not require you to specify a size.

User-defined datatypes are also possible.
