Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-24) support for reading binary data from flat files
Date Thu, 13 Nov 2008 15:01:44 GMT


Ashish Thusoo commented on HIVE-24:

I think this patch is already commited. Is there anything else needed on this. Can we mark
this as resolved?

this is easy for non-compressed streams - for compressed streams - DecompressorStream has
a useful looking getAvailable() call - except the class is marked package private.
