Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1331) dfs -test should work like /bin/test
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2012 19:06:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1331?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13490831#comment-13490831
] 

Andy Isaacson commented on HDFS-1331:
-------------------------------------

bq. follow the pattern for the usage of other commands

There's a lot of inconsistency, but I figure the {{-ls}} usage message is a good example to
follow. I cleaned up the rest of {{Test.java}}s usage message too while in there.

> hadoop dfs -test doesn't act like its shell equivalent, making it difficult to actually
use if you are used to the real test command:
> hadoop:
> $hadoop dfs -test -d /nonexist; echo $?
> test: File does not exist: /nonexist
> 255
> shell:
> $ test -d /nonexist; echo $?
> 1
> a) Why is it spitting out a message? Even so, why is it saying file instead of directory
when I used -d?
> b) Why is the return code 255? I realize this is documented as '0' if true.  But docs
basically say the value is undefined if it isn't.
> c) where is -f?
> d) Why is empty -z instead of -s ?  Was it a misunderstanding of the man page?
