When supplied with crazily large or small values as parameters for the above functions, MariaDB returns a value out of range error, where Columnstore returns a value, which may or may not be correct.
Here is a sample error msg From MariaDB:
ERROR 1690 (22003) at line 1: DOUBLE value is out of range in 'pow(`qrepd01`.`datatypetestm`.`CBIGINT`,(-(3) * `qrepd01`.`datatypetestm`.`CIDX`))'
As for cot(0), which is a divided-by-zero case, MariaDB returns an out of range error, where Columnstore returns NULL.
Could this behavioral difference caused by a settings in the my.cnf file?
For now, we are treating these differences as known/expected differences.
