Data Type Conversion


Data type conversion can be explicit by using custom functions, or implicit depending on context.

Explicit conversion

Currently, the following explicit data type conversion functions are available:

Implicit conversion

In some functions and operators, there will be an implicit data type conversion which is done internally, without any loss of information in the output. Examples include:

Other functions with type changes

There are a number of other functions which take one data type as input, and return another. These are not conversion functions, since the semantics of the functions inherently imply a loss of information. Examples include:

Specifically for DATE handling, functions are available which use a non-DATE type as input or output:
