Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2921) HBase shell prompt is not configured when used as a subprocess
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 19:58:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2921?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12899060#action_12899060
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HBASE-2921:
------------------------------------

Hrm, irb must be checking its stdout to see if it's in fact a TTY. Is there any way to convince
subprocess to use the python 'pty' module for its fork?

> When you start the HBase shell from bash, you see the following prompt:
> hbase(main):001:0>
> And typing in "conf" as the command yields the following prompt-related information:
> conf.prompt_c="%N(%m):%03n:%i* "
> conf.prompt_i="%N(%m):%03n:%i> "
> conf.prompt_mode=:DEFAULT
> conf.prompt_n="%N(%m):%03n:%i> "
> conf.prompt_s="%N(%m):%03n:%i%l "
> On the other hand, opening the HBase shell as python subprocess yields an empty string
as the prompt string. Furthermore, sending it the "conf" command through a pipe yields the
following output:
> conf.prompt_c=nil
> conf.prompt_i=nil
> conf.prompt_mode=:NULL
> conf.prompt_n=nil
> conf.prompt_s=nil
> I think this is a bug in the HBase shell. I'm not sure where it occurs, but I have found
that it can be easily patched up by hard-coding the prompt information into bin/hirb.rb. This
seems like the most appropriate fix, as bin/hirb.rb already modifies the conf for the interpreter.
