Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1902) du command throws an exception when the directory is not specified
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2007 07:47:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1902?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12527974

Enis Soztutar commented on HADOOP-1902:

This is indeed the desired behavior. Because we do not want to invoke the Path constructor
with empty string. see HADOOP-1386. If you do not have any specific reasons to use du command
w/o path argument, then we can close this issue as invalid.
