Re: Results are being padded

Hi Amit,

that is the expected behavior for the CHAR type, as specified in the documentation (

> The length of a CHAR column is fixed to the length that you declare when you create the table. The length can be any value from 0 to 255. When CHAR values are stored, they are right-padded with spaces to the specified length

You should use VARCHAR instead.

In any case, I guess the padding would have to be whitespaces and not "0"s, unless you are explicitly using a 'binary' charset instead of 'utf8' (which you probably are using by default). So, that actually might be an issue. We will investigate.
