ABS

  • Syntax
    bigint|double|decimal abs(<number>)
  • Description

    This function calculates the absolute value of number.

  • Parameters
    number: required. The value is of the DOUBLE, BIGINT, or DECIMAL type. If the input value is of the STRING type, it is implicitly converted into a value of the DOUBLE type before calculation.
    Note If the input value is of the BIGINT type and is greater than the maximum value of the BIGINT type, a value of the DOUBLE type is returned. However, the precision may be lost.
  • Return value
    The type of the return value depends on the type of the input parameter. The return value varies based on the following rules:
    • If number is of the DOUBLE, BIGINT, or DECIMAL type, a value of the same type is returned.
    • If number is of the STRING type, a value of the DOUBLE type is returned.
    • If number is set to null, null is returned.
  • Examples
    • Examples of static data
      -- The value null is returned. 
      select abs(null);

TRUNC

  • Syntax
    double|decimal trunc(<number>[, bigint <decimal_places>])
  • Description
    This function truncates the input value of number to the specified decimal place.
    Note If the Hive-compatible data type edition is used, this function is not a mathematical function. It is used to convert a date value. For more information about the related date function, see DATETRUNC. You must set the data type edition of your MaxCompute project based on your business requirements. For more information about data type editions, see Data type editions.
  • Parameters
    • number: required. The value is of the DOUBLE or DECIMAL type. If the input value is of the STRING or BIGINT type, it is implicitly converted into a value of the DOUBLE type before calculation.
    • decimal_places: optional. The value is a constant of the BIGINT type. This parameter specifies the position where the number is truncated. If this parameter is not specified, the number is truncated to the ones place. decimal_places can be a negative value, which indicates that the number is truncated from the decimal point to the left and the decimal part is left out. If decimal_places exceeds the length of the integer part, 0 is returned.
  • Return value
    A value of the DOUBLE or DECIMAL type is returned. The return value varies based on the following rules:
    • If number is of the DOUBLE or DECIMAL type, a value of the same type is returned.
    • If number is of the STRING or BIGINT type, a value of the DOUBLE type is returned.
    • If decimal_places is not of the BIGINT type, an error is returned.
    • If the value of number or decimal_places is null, null is returned.
    Note
    • If a value of the DOUBLE type is returned, the return value may not be properly displayed. This issue exists in all systems. For more information, see trunc(125.815,1) in the following examples.
    • The number is filled with zeros from the specified position.
  • Examples
    • Examples of static data
      -- The value 125.0 is returned. 
      select trunc(125.815,0);
      -- The value 125.80000000000001 is returned.

UNHEX

  • Syntax
    binary unhex(string <number>)
  • Description

    This function converts a hexadecimal string into a string. This function is an extension function of MaxCompute V2.0.

  • Parameters

    number: required. The value is a hexadecimal string.

  • Return value
    A value of the BINARY type is returned. The return value varies based on the following rules:
    • If the value of number is 0, an error is returned.
    • If the value of number is null, null is returned.
  • Examples
    -- The value abc is returned. 
    select unhex('616263');
    -- The value abc is returned. 
    select unhex(616263);
    -- The value null is returned. 
    select unhex(null);

WIDTH_BUCKET

  • Syntax
    width_bucket(numeric <expr>, numeric <min_value>, numeric <max_value>, int <num_buckets>)
  • Description

    This function specifies the number of buckets and the minimum and maximum values of the acceptable range for a bucket. It allows you to construct equi-width buckets, in which the bucket range is divided into intervals that have an identical size. It returns the ID of the bucket into which the value of a specific expression falls. This function supports the following data types: DECIMAL(precision,scale) in the MaxCompute V2.0 data type edition, BIGINT, INT, FLOAT, DOUBLE, and DECIMAL. For more information, see MaxCompute V2.0 data type edition. This function is an extension function of MaxCompute V2.0.

  • Parameters
    • expr: required. This parameter specifies the expression for which you want to identify the matching bucket ID.
    • min_value: required. This parameter specifies the minimum value of the acceptable range for the bucket.
    • max_value: required. This parameter specifies the maximum value of the acceptable range for the bucket. The value must be greater than min_value.
    • num_buckets: required. This parameter specifies the number of buckets. The value must be greater than 0.
  • Return value
    A value of the BIGINT type is returned. The value ranges from 0 to num_buckets plus 1. The return value varies based on the following rules:
    • If the value of expr is less than that of min_value, 0 is returned.
    • If the value of expr is greater than that of max_value, the value of num_buckets plus 1 is returned.
    • If the value of expr is null, null is returned. In other cases, the ID of the bucket into which the value falls is returned. The bucket ID is calculated based on the following formula: Bucket ID = floor(num_buckets × (expr - min_value)/(max_value - min_value) + 1).
    • If the value of min_value, max_value, or num_buckets is null, null is returned.
  • Examples
    • Example 1: The values of all input parameters are not null. Sample statement:
      select key,value,width_bucket(value,100,500,5) as value_group
      from values 
          (1,99),
          (2,100),
          (3,199),
          (4,200),
          (5,499),
          (6,500),
          (7,501),
          (8,NULL)
      as t(key,value);
      The following result is returned:
      +-------+--------+-------------+
      | key   | value  | value_group |
      +-------+--------+-------------+
      | 1     | 99     | 0           |
      | 2     | 100    | 1           |
      | 3     | 199    | 2           |
