      Description

      Currently Hive uses a default decimal type info instance to associate with a decimal constant in the expression tree. To precisely determine the precision/scale of the expression result requires more accurate precision/scale of the type of the decimal constant. Thus, Hive uses a precision/scale of the constant for the type info instance. As an example, the following is not desirable:

      hive> create table mytable as select 3.14BD as t from person_age limit 1;
      hive> desc mytable;
      OK
      t                   	decimal(65,30)      	None                
      Time taken: 0.08 seconds, Fetched: 1 row(s)
      

      instead, the precision/scale for t above should be (3, 2).
