Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-5684) Add documentation for lineDelimiter
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2017 15:42:00 GMT
Abhishek Girish created DRILL-5684:

             Summary: Add documentation for lineDelimiter
                 Key: DRILL-5684
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-5684
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.10.0, 1.11.0
            Reporter: Abhishek Girish
            Assignee: Bridget Bevens

We need to document the lineDelimiter attribute in [1], [2]. Also possibly a note that if
using Drill on Windows, the new line delimiter in text files can be different from that on
Linux / Mac. If the delimited text data has \r\n as the lineDelimiter (carriage return &
new line) and querying it from Drill doesn't work as expected, we need to update the format
plugin, as shown in the example below:
"csv": {
      "type": "text",
      "extensions": [
      "lineDelimiter": "\r\n",
      "extractHeader": true,
      "delimiter": ","
