-Using doubles and longs as ordering row values
Jonathan Bishop 2012-11-05, 18:41
In my application my row values are doubles. I would like my scans to
traverse the rows in order of increasing values.
But if I simply use
double d = ....
byte row = Bytes.toBytes(d);
I will get an ordering which is based on the byte values of doubles, not on
the value of the doubles themselves.
I see also that integer values have the same issue due to the first bit
being the sign bit. So negative values will come after positive values.
