Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8456) Support spaces in user names and group names in results returned via winutils
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2012 15:15:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8456?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13484182#comment-13484182

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-8456:
------------------------------------------

How does Cygwin, MS SUA, etc handle this problem?  We should do the same thing on Windows
in order maintain compatibility with those systems.

> When parsing results returned by ‘ls’, we made implicit assumption that user and
group names cannot contain spaces. On Linux, spaces are not allowed in user names and group
names. This is not the case for Windows. We need to find a way to fix the problem for Windows.
