Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-5) "set" command is case-sensitive; also lacks "EXTENDED" support, as documented on http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hive/HiveQL

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-5?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12647786#action_12647786
] 

Joydeep Sen Sarma commented on HIVE-5:
--------------------------------------

do we really need this? 

the current command is modeled after the export shell command. export x=y sets the variable.
export with no args prints all the current settings. we are missing an equivalent of export
-n (to unset stuff).

if this is not a good model - then we should switch it with something different altogether.

> When I try to run "SET;" from the Hive shell, I get a parse error (FAILED: Parse Error:
line 1:0 cannot recognize input 'SET'). It works if I run "set;". Also, when I try to run
"set extended;", I get a new kind of error, with error message "extended is undefined".
> On another note, can we alias "SET;" to something more descriptive, like "SHOW VARIABLES"
(e.g. http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/show-variables.html)?
