Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-230) improve syntax of the hadoop dfs command
Date Thu, 18 May 2006 15:57:06 GMT
improve syntax of the hadoop dfs command 

         Key: HADOOP-230
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-230
     Project: Hadoop
        Type: Improvement

    Reporter: Yoram Arnon
    Priority: Minor

the hadoop dfs syntax (hadoop dfs -option value -cmd arg) is clunky: options must appear before
the command, the command looks like just another option.
I propose a more standard syntax:
1. the command (ls, mv, du etc.) always comes first
2. no '-' for the command
3. options may appear anywhere, including between the command and its arguments

allowed syntax would be:
hadoop dfs ls -dfs <dfs> /path
hadoop dfs job [-status] job_0002 -jt <jt>
