>                 Key: PIG-1573
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-1573
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.7.0
>            Reporter: Xuefu Zhang
>            Assignee: Daniel Dai
>             Fix For: 0.9.0
> Currently If in a pig script user uses a UDF with no argument, PIG backend assumes that
the UDF takes all input so at run time it passes all input as a tuple to the UDF. This assumption
is incorrect, causing conceptual confusions. If a UDF takes all input, it can specify a star
(*) as its argument. If it specify no argument at  all, then we assume that it requires no
input data. 
> We need to differentiate no input and all input for a UDF. Thus, in case that a UDF specify
no argument, backend should pass the UDF  an empty tuple.
> See notes in PIG-1586 for more information.
