Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9912) globStatus of a symlink to a directory does not report symlink as a directory
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 19:31:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9912?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13756964#comment-13756964

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-9912:

bq.  The shell needs to be able to "see" symlinks, not just the files they point to

This is why I proposed we return the resolved stat with the symlink bit set.  Symlink-aware
code, like the shell's ls can call getFileLinkStatus if they need to.  Like users, the rest
of the shell's commands probably won't care about symlinks either.

Adding a flag for {{globStatus}} will fix the specific case observed by pig, but the same
issue still applies for any user code that calls {{listStatus}}.  We probably need for both
to have a flag.
