Subject Determining "Hidden" Files in Hadoop
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 22:34:55 GMT
Greetings,

Over on the Nutch dev list there's been a bit of chatter about
files/folders generated by Hadoop (generally speaking 0.17) such as
'_logs'.  Digging through Hadoop a bit revealed that there is a
private hiddenFileFilter in FileInputFilter.java.  This is similar to
what I came up with here:
http://www.mail-archive.com/nutch-dev@lucene.apache.org/msg08214.html

I couldn't find any other mention of "hidden" files in the Hadoop
codebase or the wiki and little on the mailing lists.

Is there a defined standard for hidden files or a public interface for
determining file visibility?

Thanks!
