Subj:   Re: Aiii, INTERVALs!
 
From:   Victor Sokovin

  Yes, it's too much effort. There should be a seperate Masters exam solely for timestamps and intervals.  


  Anyway, the first does what you want if you cast the DECIMAL(5,1) AS INTERVAL SECOND(4,1), at least on my machine.  


  I guess rounding is difficult to implement with multi-part interval datatypes, where the round-up in the SECONDS part can spill over into the MINUTE/HOUR/DAY parts?  


  I wish they would just implement a full YEAR TO SECOND interval datatype with the ability to directly CAST ( TIMESTAMP AS YEAR TO SECOND ) and vice versa. Oh well ...  



Not to forget fixing the bug in intervals with decimal part. Example here:

This one, in my opinion, should be on the short wish list, too.


Regards,

Victor
