Navis commented on HIVE-1955:
-----------------------------

Is there any reason index value should be constant?
                
> Support non-constant expressions for array indexes.

not Supported dut
> ...just wrote my own UDF to do this, and it is trivial. We should support this natively.
> Let foo have these rows:
> arr           i
> [1,2,3]       1
> [3,4,5]       2
> [5,4,3]       2
> [0,0,1]       0
> Then,
> SELECT arr[i] FROM foo
> should return:
> 2
> 5
> 3
> 1
> Similarly, for the same table,
> SELECT 3 IN arr FROM foo
> should return:
> true
> true
> true
> false
> ...these use cases are needless limitations of functionality. We shouldn't need UDFs
to accomplish these goals.
