Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3498) File globbing alternation should be able to span path components
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2008 14:07:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3498?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12602652#action_12602652

Tom White commented on HADOOP-3498:

This could be implemented by recursively expanding alternations to produce a list of Paths,
as the first stage of glob processing.

> For example, {/a/b,/c/d} should expand to /a/b and /c/d. This change would also permit
a consistent syntax for specifying multiple input paths to MapReduce, streaming and Pig by
specification of a single glob path with alternation {/a/b,/c/d}, rather than a collection
of comma separated glob paths /a/b,/c/d.
> This change would also make globbing more consistent with bash, which supports this feature.
