Subject [jira] Commented: (PIG-904) Conversion from double to chararray for udf input arguments does not occur
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 20:26:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-904?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12913227#action_12913227

Alan Gates commented on PIG-904:

I don't understand what the issue is here.  CONCAT does not take doubles.  The script above
tries to pass it a double, and Pig properly says you can't do that.  Is the issue that an
implicit cast isn't inserted here?  I don't think Pig currently does implicit casts to match
possible UDF signatures.
