Subject filesystem pathnames or (file) URI references?
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2015 19:17:35 GMT
For the file system plug-in, are Drill table name identifiers supposed
to be taken as filesystem pathnames or as URI references?  (Or is it
sometimes one and sometimes the other, and, if so, when one and when
the other?)

For example, would the delimited identifier `10%20%30` refer to a file
with simple name "10%20%30" or file with simple name "10 0"?  (Or, the
other way around, to refer to a file whose simple name is "23:59:59",
can one use simply `23:59:59` or must one use `./23:59:59`?)

I ask because I see that a number of tests use the "file:" URI for
a file instead of the filesystem pathname for the file.
