Subject Re: Parameter Substitution in Pig
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2008 20:27:51 GMT
This approach seems fairly brittle.  For example whitespace in a  
parameter can have unexpected results.

Given the use of a distinct preprocessor, are there any existing ones  
that make sense?

Does the pig language support literals with whitespace, carriage- 
returns and so on?  If so, how does one define a parameter in a file  
with such characters in them?

How does this approach compare to solutions used in SQL?

In Hadoop, the discussion would be in a jira.  Does moving the  
discussion to a jira make sense?
