# ReturnNumbersAsDecimals.py
# Returns all numbers as decimals by means of an output type handler. This is
# needed if the full decimal precision of Oracle numbers is required by the
# application. See this article
# (http://blog.reverberate.org/2016/02/06/floating-point-demystified-part2.html)
# for an explanation of why decimal numbers (like Oracle numbers) cannot be
# represented exactly by floating point numbers.
#
# This script requires cx_Oracle 5.0 and higher.
