Subject [jira] [Updated] (ACCUMULO-1706) Admin Utilities Should Respect EPIPE
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2013 03:58:41 GMT


Mike Drob updated ACCUMULO-1706:

    Attachment: 0001-ACCUMULO-1706-check-for-error-on-sysout.patch

This patch illustrates places where a user may pipe the output to something like {{head}}
or {{less}}. If other people have utilities that they use and would like better behaviour
from, leave a comment. Otherwise, these are my main two, and I don't even know everything
else that is out there.

> Many of the admin utilities can potentially print a lot of output, but don't play nice
with standard unix utilities like {{head}}. These tools should periodically check if the stdout
pipe has been closed, and terminate appropriately, instead of continuing to execute and printing
output that nobody will ever see.
> This check can be done using {{System.out.checkError()}}.
