toy
. The argument types should be DECIMAL, and can have different precisions and scales. Fast path is implemented for cases that should not overflow. For the others, the whole parts and fractional parts of input decimals are added separately and combined finally. The result type is calculated with the max precision of input precisions, the max scale of input scales, and one extra digit for possible carrier. Overflow results in null output. Corresponds to Spark’s operator+

 unhex(x) varbinary ¶
Converts hexadecimal varchar
x
to varbinary.x
is considered case insensitive and expected to contain only hexadecimal characters 09 and AF. Ifx
contains nonhexadecimal character, the function returns NULL. Whenx
contains an even number of characters, each pair is converted to a single byte. The number of bytes in the result is half the number of bytes in the input. Whenx
contains an odd number of characters, the first character is decoded into the first byte of the result and the remaining pairs of characters are decoded into subsequent bytes. This behavior matches Spark 3.3.2 and newer.SELECT unhex("23");  # SELECT unhex("f");  \x0F SELECT unhex("b2323");  \x0B## SELECT unhex("G");  NULL SELECT unhex("G23");  NULL
