Date Tue, 02 Feb 2010 00:10:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1190?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Ashutosh Chauhan updated PIG-1190:
----------------------------------

    Attachment: pig-1190.patch

this patch fixes the issue of quotes with register and set commands. Consider following two
cases:

set job.priority 'high'
set job.priority high

In both the case job priority will now get set to high. 
Similarly for register command.

> 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.
