Olga Natkovich commented on PIG-1190:
-------------------------------------

we don't need to fix file system commands because they are obsolete

> There is some inconsistency in the way quoted strings are used/handled in pig-latin .
> In load/store and define-ship commands, files are specified in quoted strings , and the
file name is the content within the quotes.  But in case of register, set, and file system
commands , if string is specified in quotes, the quotes are also included as part of the string.
This is not only inconsistent , it is also unintuitive. 
> This is also inconsistent with the way hdfs commandline (or bash shell) interpret file
names.
> For example, currently with the command - 
> set job.name 'job123'
> The job name set set to 'job123' (including the quotes) not job123 .
> This needs to be fixed, and above command should be considered equivalent to - set job.name
job123.
