Subject [jira] Created: (HDFS-1608) Provide overwrite option (-overwrite/-f) in put and copyFromLocal command line options
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 15:40:29 GMT
Provide overwrite option (-overwrite/-f) in put and copyFromLocal command line options
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-1608
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1608
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: hdfs client
    Affects Versions: 0.20.2, 0.20.1
            Reporter: Uma Maheswara Rao G
            Priority: Minor


FileSystem has the API 

  {code:xml}


public void copyFromLocalFile(boolean delSrc, boolean overwrite, Path[] srcs, Path dst)

{code}        
                         
This API provides overwrite option. But the mapping command line doesn't have this option.
To maintain the consistency and better usage  the command line option also can support the
overwrite option like to put the files forcefully. ( put [-f] <srcpath> <dstPath>)
and also for copyFromLocal command line option.
