Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-222) Set replication from dfsshell
Date Thu, 18 May 2006 10:32:06 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-222?page=comments#action_12412326 ] 

Andrzej Bialecki  commented on HADOOP-222:
------------------------------------------

Other things that I would love to see added to DFSShell (to make it more shell-like). They
are not such a big deal to implement, but they would increase the usefulness of this class
tremendously (note: this is orthogonal to the issue of using Commons CLI, which I'd love to
see too):

* globbing and multi-argument cp/mv/rm/ls, using the standard shell metacharacters

* interactive mode: ability to issue several commands in the same session, while keeping track
of the context (such as pwd)

* scripts: nothing fancy, just the ability to execute several commands recorded in a text
file.

The scriptability and interactive mode, and a host of other useful features we can throw in
cheaply by using Rhino (http://www.mozilla.org/rhino/shell.html).
