Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1045) Create a suite of shell commands or common features
Date Tue, 07 May 2013 01:05:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1045?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13650319#comment-13650319

Mike Drob commented on ACCUMULO-1045:
-------------------------------------

bq. No. The shell has serious limitations. The intent is to obsolete it with more convenient
utilities.

Can you elaborate on this somewhat? I am aware of many of the limitations of the shell, but
was under the impression that the thrift proxy was supposed to make writing python et. al.
scripts a lot easier.

> Create a suite of command-line utilities (probably based on the shell's existing commands,
or a subset of them), rather than be restricted to the limitations of the shell to issue these
commands.
> This adds benefit by being able to more simply pipe to external utilities, like awk,
grep, sed, etc. It also has the potential to eliminate restrictions when scanning for binary
data, standardize command line arguments better (especially by removing the shell "current-table"
context), and leverage settings/profiles stored in some file (like $HOME/.accumulo/config).
