Subject [jira] Resolved: (HIVE-621) Inconsistent reporting of "null" and delimiter across access types
Date Sun, 08 Aug 2010 08:56:16 GMT

Adam Kramer resolved HIVE-621.
------------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

This is the way things work now. Unsure who fixed it. Note, however, that \N and null and
NULL are still not consistent; see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1466

> If you INSERT OVERWRITE LOCAL DIRECTORY, you get a bunch of \N fields in your output...If
you hive -e "SELECT ..." you get a bunch of "null" fields in your output. I also recall having
seen NULL (in caps) before somewhere, too, but maybe I'm dreaming that.
> In any case, it would be nice if this were consistent! Preference: \N everywhere.
> Ditto, when you I O L D, your fields are ^A-delimited, but when you SELECT, they're ^V
(tab)-delimited. It would be nice if this, too, were consistent. Preference: tabs everywhere.
