      Description

      Currently we can red out of a fixed binary column in parquet only if it is one of the decimal converted types. This is only a subset of the use cases of the fixed binary table as it can be used to store any arbitrary binary data that is byte aligned and the same length for all values. Unfortunately we do not have the fixed binary vector implemented in Drill currently, so the data will be read into the varbinary vectors, but this cam be optimized later.
