Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-414) The CSV file source needs to be a little more robust when handling multi-line CSV files
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:54:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-414?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14043829#comment-14043829

Brandon Inman commented on CRUNCH-414:
--------------------------------------

Instead of a threshold, could you use endOfFile?  

Psuedocode-
{code}

 } while (currentlyInQuotes && !endOfFile);

if(endOfFile && currentlyInQuotes) {
    throw new IOException("File ended inside of an escaped region");
 }

{code}

> Brandon Inman recently reported an undesriable behavior in the CSV file source group
of files. Currently, the CSVLineReader, if reading a malformed CSV file, can enter a state
where it is perpetually waiting for an end-quote character. As he put it, "Malformed files
are malformed files and should probably fail in some regard, but a hang is obviously undesirable."

> Essentially, the CSVLineReader needs to be tweaked in such a way that an informative
exception is thrown after some threshold is reached, instead of basically just hanging.
