> I often find myself needing to take a quick look at a particular column of a Hive table.
> I usually do this by doing a 
> SELECT * from <table> LIMIT 20;
> from the CLI.  Doing this is pretty fast since it doesn't require a mapreduce job.  However,
it's tough to examine just 1 or 2 columns when the table is very wide.
> So, I might do
> SELECT <col> from <table> LIMIT 20;
> but it's much slower since it requires a map-reduce.  It'd be really convenient if a
map-reduce wasn't necessary.
> Currently a good work around is to do
> hive -e "select * from table" | cut --key=n
> but it'd be more convenient if it were built in since it alleviates the need for column
counting.
