>                 Key: CASSANDRA-4776
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4776
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.5
>         Environment: Mac OS X, Fedora 16
>            Reporter: John Sanda

> The docs at http://cassandra.apache.org/doc/cql3/CQL.html#identifiers describe using
double quotes for an identifier that is a reserved word. The following works as expected,
> cqlsh:test> select "columnfamily" from system.schema_columnfamilies;
> I have a table with a boolean column. In order to insert a boolean value, I have to enclose
it in single quotes. The table looks like,
> CREATE TABLE bool_test (
>   id int PRIMARY KEY,
>   val boolean
> );
> Here is what happens when I try using double quotes,
> cqlsh:rhq> insert into bool_test (id, val) values (4, "false");
> Bad Request: line 1:43 no viable alternative at input 'false'
> The use of single quotes here seems inconsistent with what is described in the docs,
and makes things a bit confusing. It would be nice if single or double quotes could be used
for identifiers that are reserved words. I also think it is a bit counter-intuitive to require
quotes for true and false which are literal values.
