class ApproximateNumeric

[source: scala/dbc/datatype/ApproximateNumeric.scala]

abstract class ApproximateNumeric[Type](val override nativeTypeId : Int)
extends Numeric[Type]
A type category for all SQL types that store varying-precision numbers.
Method Summary
def isEquivalent (datatype : DataType) : Boolean
Tests whether this datatype is equivalent to another. Usually, two types are defined as equivalent if they are equal. Two types can be equivalent without being equal if values of those types will be encoded in the same native Scala type.
def isSubtypeOf (datatype : DataType) : Boolean
Tests whether this datatype is equivalent or a subtype of another datatype. Type A is said to be subtype of type B if any value of type A can be represented as a value of type B.
override def sqlString : String
A SQL-99 compliant string representation of the type.

Compatibility notice

This method assumes that a real uses 32 bits and a double 64. This is not defined in the standard but is usually the case.
