CAST

description

Syntax

cast (input as type)

将 input转成指定的(type)的值,如cast (input as BIGINT)将当前列 input 转换为 BIGINT 类型的值

example

  1. 转常量,或表中某列

    MySQL > select cast (1 as BIGINT);
    +-------------------+
    | CAST(1 AS BIGINT) |
    +-------------------+
    |                 1 |
    +-------------------+
  2. 转导入的原始数据

    curl --location-trusted -u root: -T ~/user_data/bigint \
        -H "columns: tmp_k1, k1=cast(tmp_k1 as BIGINT)" \
        http://host:port/api/test/bigint/_stream_load

    注:在导入中,由于原始类型均为String,将值为浮点的原始数据做 cast的时候数据会被转换成 NULL ,比如 12.0 。StarRocks 目前不会对原始数据做截断。

    如果想强制将这种类型的原始数据 cast to int 的话。请看下面写法:

    curl --location-trusted -u root: -T ~/user_data/bigint \
        -H "columns: tmp_k1, k1=cast(cast(tmp_k1 as DOUBLE) as BIGINT)" \
        http://host:port/api/test/bigint/_stream_load
    MySQL > select cast(cast ("11.2" as double) as bigint);
    +----------------------------------------+
    | CAST(CAST('11.2' AS DOUBLE) AS BIGINT) |
    +----------------------------------------+
    |                                     11 |
    +----------------------------------------+
