Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1920) DESCRIBE with comments is difficult to read
Date Fri, 21 Jan 2011 19:37:43 GMT


Namit Jain commented on HIVE-1920:

Do you want to change the default behavior to not show any comments ?

describe showcomments <tablename>;
can show the comments - the existing users dont have to change their applications

> When DESCRIBE is run, comments for columns are displayed next to the column type. A problem
with this is that if the comment contains line breaks, it is difficult to differentiate the
columns from the comments and is difficult to read.
