Subject Re: does "fs -put " create subdirectories?
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 17:05:48 GMT
On 1.x, -put does mkdir the parent directories if they are non existent
(akin to mkdir -p).

On 2.x, -put does not do this - we need the dir to pre-exist or mkdir'd
before -put.

➜  ~  hadoop fs -put foo a/bc/dfe/fsdf.t
put: `a/bc/dfe/fsdf.t': No such file or directory
