Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-662) dfs -ls sometime prints "Found xxx items"; sometimes it does not print that string
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2006 13:44:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-662?page=comments#action_12455307 ] 
Jiang Lei commented on HADOOP-662:

What's your command line ? 
If you use command like "bin/hadoop dfs -ls *txt" , I think the bash will substitute the *.txt
with the files who match the pattern in your current directory.
I think you can try to quot your pattern string with quotation marks. 
For instance: 
bin/hadoop dfs -ls "*txt"

>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: dfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.7.2
>            Reporter: dhruba borthakur
>            Priority: Minor
> I get a different response from dfs -ls depending on whether or not the 
> ls contained a directory or a wildcard. The wild card misses the 
> response that tells me how many files.
> It did indeed cause a problem with my scripts. It was easy to filter 
> out. If it's a desired action to do it sometimes and others then that's 
> it's ok. It doesn't seem like this is really the intention so I pointed 
> it out. My script is now happy with both forms. I do really on the fact 
> that the 3 column of the output is the file size. Perhaps I shouldn't be
