Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8873) Port HADOOP-8175 (Add mkdir -p flag) to branch-1
Date Tue, 09 Jul 2013 17:47:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8873?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13703551#comment-13703551

Akira AJISAKA commented on HADOOP-8873:
---------------------------------------

[~sureshms], thank you for your comment.

bq. But does mkdir fail if the directory you are creating exists not the parent directory?

Mkdir doesn't fail if the parent directory doesn't exist on 1.2.0.

bq. Which release are you running this on? Assuming it is 2.x, not sure I understand how this
scenario is related to the discussion in this bug.

I am running this on 1.2.0. I just wanted to confirm how this scenario (-p option) works.

> Per HADOOP-8551 let's port the mkdir -p option to branch-1 for a 1.x release to help
users transition to the new shell behavior. In Hadoop 2.x mkdir currently requires the -p
option to create parent directories but a program that specifies it won't work on 1.x since
it doesn't support this option.
