Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-159) Make changes to the parser to support new types functionality
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 11:45:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-159?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12602253#action_12602253
] 

Pi Song commented on PIG-159:
-----------------------------

I think it is more appropriate for users to optionally specify input/output data types as
a part of UDF implementation rather than in Pig Script. For example if I were to implement
ArcSin, I would always expect input/output to be Double.  Another missing thing in the proposed
syntax is the function parameter. I think the existing syntax is already good.

> In order to support the new types functionality described in http://wiki.apache.org/pig/PigTypesFunctionalSpec,
the parse needs to change in the following ways:
> 1) AS needs to support types in addition to aliases.  So where previously it was legal
to say:
> a = load 'myfile' as a, b, c;
> it will now also be legal to say
> a = load 'myfile' as a integer, b float, c chararray;
> 2) Non string constants need to be supported.  This includes non-string atomic types
(integer, long, float, double) and the non-atomic types bags, tuples, and maps.
> 3) A cast operator needs to be added so that fields can be explicitly casted.
> 4) Changes to DEFINE, to allow users to declare arguments and return types for UDFs
