Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2113) Add "-text" command to FsShell to decode SequenceFile to stdout
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2007 16:28:50 GMT

Enis Soztutar commented on HADOOP-2113:

bq. I think I've explained this command poorly. It attempts to render whatever exists at a
given path as human-readable text.
Himm, i guess i've just assumed that the file would be a SequenceFile, in which case the patch
dumps all the contents of the file. But what i propose is more general for sequence files,
but it lacks other file types. 

bq. aren't each of those commands easily implemented in map/reduce?
yes, they can be easily implemented as MR jobs, or local jobs, but the framework should include
such jobs. 

Now understanding the original intention, I am OK with the current patch and I suggest we
finalize this patch, and continue with Hadoop-175 for SF handling. We can later change SF
dumping code(TextRecordInputStream) in Hadoop-175.
