Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8456) Support spaces in user names and group names in results returned via winutils
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2012 04:38:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8456?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13498602#comment-13498602

Ivan Mitic commented on HADOOP-8456:
------------------------------------

bq. Only suggestion would be to use getopt to process the args to simplify the logic, otherwise
I think it looks good.
Thanks Daryn. If I understood your comment correctly, you are referring to [GNU C lib function|http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/Using-Getopt.html#Using-Getopt]
which does not exist in the C runtime lib we are using on Windows :)

> 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.
