23.5. Precision Math Examples

MySQL 5 introduces precision math, that is, numeric value handling that results in more accurate results and more control over invalid values than in earlier versions of MySQL. Precision math is based on two implementation changes:

The introduction of new SQL modes in MySQL 5.0.2 that control how strict the server is about accepting or rejecting invalid data.

The introduction in MySQL 5.0.3 of a library for fixed-point arithmetic.

These changes have several implications for numeric operations:

More precise calculations.

For exact-value numbers, calculations do not introduce floating-point error. Instead, exact precision is used. For example, a number such as .0001 is treated as an exact value rather than as an approximate value, and summing it 10,000 times produces a result of 1, not a value "close" to 1.

Well-defined rounding behavior.

For the exact-value numbers, the result of ROUND() depends on its argument, not on factors such as how the underlying C library works.

Improved platform independence.

Operations on exact numeric values are the same across different platforms such as Windows and Unix.

Control over invalid value handling.

Overflow and division by zero are detectable and can be treated as errors. For example, you can treat a value that is too large for a column as an error rather than having the value truncated to lie within the range of the column's data type. Similarly, you can treat division by zero as an error rather than as an operation that produces a result of NULL. The choice of which approach to take is determined by the setting of the sql_mode system variable.

An important result of these changes is that MySQL provides improved compliance with standard SQL.

The following discussion covers several aspects of how precision math works (including possible incompatibilities with older applications). At the end, some examples are given that demonstrate how MySQL 5 handles numeric operations more precisely than before.

2.10.1. Upgrading from Version 4.1 to 5.0

SQL Changes:

DECIMAL columns now are stored in a more efficient format. To convert a table to use the new DECIMAL type, you should do an ALTER TABLE on it. The ALTER TABLE also will change the table's VARCHAR columns to use the new VARCHAR column type. For information about possible incompatibilities with old applications, see Chapter 23, Precision Math.

MySQL 5.0.3 and up uses precision math when calculating with DECIMAL values (64 decimal digits) and for rounding exact-value numbers. See Chapter 23, Precision Math.

As of MySQL 5.0.3, trailing spaces no longer are removed from values stored in VARCHAR and VARBINARY columns. The maximum length for VARCHAR or VARBINARY now is 65,535 characters or bytes, respectively.

Note: If you create a table with new VARCHAR or VARBINARY columns in MySQL 5.0.3 or up, the table will not be usable if you downgrade to a version older than 5.0.3. Dump the table before downgrading and then reload it after downgrading.

As of MySQL 5.0.3, BIT is a separate data type, not a synonym for TINYINT(1). See Section 11.1.1, “Overview of Numeric Types”.
