Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-12914) cqlsh describe fails with "list[i] not a string for i in..."

-----------------------------------------

             Summary: cqlsh describe fails with "list[i] not a string for i in..."
                 Key: CASSANDRA-12914
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-12914
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Adam Holmberg


repro:
Create a keyspace and a few user types.
{code}
use keyspace;
desc types;
{code}

This is caused by a limitation in {{cmd.Cmd.columnize}} in that it doesn't accept unicode,
which our identifiers are. Ending stack trace:

{noformat}
"...bin/cqlsh.py", ... in describe_usertypes
    cmd.Cmd.columnize(self, protect_names(ksmeta.user_types.keys()))
  File "/Users/adamholmberg/.pyenv/versions/2.7.8/lib/python2.7/cmd.py", line 363, in columnize
    ", ".join(map(str, nonstrings)))
TypeError: list[i] not a string for i in 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
{noformat}

This was previously obscured because the driver was incorrectly encoding identifiers in {{protect_name}},
which caused other problems for cqlsh schema generation. With that [change|https://github.com/datastax/python-driver/commit/0959b5dc1662d6957f2951738d0a4f053ac78f66],
we now must encode identifiers in cqlsh to avoid blowing up `columnize`.
