Whoosh NUMERIC float fields

Issue #448 new
Former user created an issue

With the following code:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import os
from whoosh.index import create_in
import whoosh.fields as fields

indexdir = "test"

schema = fields.Schema(floatfield=fields.NUMERIC(numtype=float, sortable=True, stored=True))

if not os.path.exists(indexdir):
ix = create_in(indexdir, schema)
writer = ix.writer()


I get the following error:

$ ./whoosh-error-float.py 
Traceback (most recent call last):
