[Python] Document precision and scale parameters of decimal128()

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

      Description

      In pyarrow, the decimal128() factory takes two parameters, precision and scale.

      It is unclear to me, what these parameters are and how to use them. Unfortunately, the wikipedia entry for Decimal128 does not help either.
