Subject [jira] Created: (HBASE-2921) HBase shell prompt is not configured when used as a subprocess

HBase shell prompt is not configured when used as a subprocess

                 Key: HBASE-2921
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2921
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: shell
    Affects Versions: 0.89.20100621
            Reporter: Aditya Acharya

When you start the HBase shell from bash, you see the following prompt:


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_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


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.
