Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-8675) COPY TO/FROM broken for newline characters
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2015 15:34:34 GMT
Lex Lythius created CASSANDRA-8675:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: COPY TO/FROM broken for newline characters
                 Key: CASSANDRA-8675
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-8675
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
         Environment: [cqlsh 5.0.1 | Cassandra 2.1.2 | CQL spec 3.2.0 | Native protocol v3]
Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit
            Reporter: Lex Lythius


Exporting/importing does not preserve contents when texts containing newline (and possibly
other) characters are involved:

{{code}}
cqlsh:test> create table if not exists copytest (id int primary key, t text);
cqlsh:test> insert into copytest (id, t) values (1, 'This has a newline
        ... character');
cqlsh:test> insert into copytest (id, t) values (2, 'This has a quote " character');
cqlsh:test> insert into copytest (id, t) values (3, 'This has a fake tab \t character (typed
backslash, t)');
cqlsh:test> select * from copytest;

 id | t
----+---------------------------------------------------------
  1 |                           This has a newline\ncharacter
  2 |                            This has a quote " character
  3 | This has a fake tab \t character (entered slash-t text)

(3 rows)

cqlsh:test> copy copytest to '/tmp/copytest.csv';

3 rows exported in 0.034 seconds.
cqlsh:test> 

cqlsh:test> copy copytest to '/tmp/copytest.csv';

3 rows exported in 0.034 seconds.
cqlsh:test> copy copytest from '/tmp/copytest.csv';

3 rows imported in 0.005 seconds.
cqlsh:test> select * from copytest;

 id | t
----+-------------------------------------------------------
  1 |                          This has a newlinencharacter
  2 |                          This has a quote " character
  3 | This has a fake tab \t character (typed backslash, t)

(3 rows)
{{/code}}

I tried replacing \n in the CSV file with \\n, which just expands to \n in the table; and
with an actual newline character, which fails with error since it prematurely terminates the
record.

It seems backslashes are only used to take the following character as a literal

Until this is fixed, what would be the best way to refactor an old table with a new, incompatible
structure maintaining its content and name?
