Subject Re: --hiveconf vs -hiveconf
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2014 02:19:57 GMT
I didn't know that -hiveconf is supported. However, from hive -H, double
dashes are seen.

 -h <hostname>                    connecting to Hive Server on remote host
    --hiveconf <property=value>   Use value for given property
    --hivevar <key=value>         Variable subsitution to apply to hive

Thanks,
Xuefu
