Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-1211) Pig script runs half way after which it reports syntax error
Date Wed, 05 May 2010 16:15:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1211?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12864386#action_12864386

Pradeep Kamath commented on PIG-1211:

core unit tests are pass on my local machine - the errors reported above seem to be related
to the environment. The release audit warning is due to a html file change and can be ignored
- the patch is ready for review.

> I have a Pig script which is structured in the following way
> {code}
> register cp.jar
> dataset = load '/data/dataset/' using PigStorage('\u0001') as (col1, col2, col3, col4,
> filtered_dataset = filter dataset by (col1 == 1);
> proj_filtered_dataset = foreach filtered_dataset generate col2, col3;
> rmf $output1;
> store proj_filtered_dataset into '$output1' using PigStorage();
> second_stream = foreach filtered_dataset  generate col2, col4, col5;
> group_second_stream = group second_stream by col4;
> output2 = foreach group_second_stream {
>  a =  second_stream.col2
>  b =   distinct second_stream.col5;
>  c = order b by $0;
>  generate 1 as key, group as keyword, MYUDF(c, 100) as finalcalc;
> }
> rmf  $output2;
> --syntax error here
> store output2 to '$output2' using PigStorage();
> {code}
> I run this script using the Multi-query option, it runs successfully till the first store
but later fails with a syntax error. 
> The usage of HDFS option, "rmf" causes the first store to execute. 
> The only option the I have is to run an explain before running his script 
> grunt> explain -script myscript.pig -out explain.out
> or moving the rmf statements to the top of the script
> Here are some questions:
> a) Can we have an option to do something like "checkscript" instead of explain to get
the same syntax error?  In this way I can ensure that I do not run for 3-4 hours before encountering
a syntax error
> b) Can pig not figure out a way to re-order the rmf statements since all the store directories
are variables
> Thanks
