Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-7390) Make quote character optional and configurable in BeeLine CSV/TSV output
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2014 19:32:39 GMT


Szehon Ho commented on HIVE-7390:

Hi, I guess we will continue the discussion here from HIVE-7390.  First, thanks for incorporating
my feedback from that partial patch.

So I read this patch, and it has one option:
{noformat} 'outputAsCLICSVFormat=[true/false]	display the output in the csv format as Hive
command line\n \ {noformat}

The only difference is quote, right?   If my understanding is right, can't we have a new output
format called 'quotedCSV', and change the default csv format to be unquoted, as was discussed
earlier on this JIRA by Jim Halfpenny.  (He mentioned single-quote is not standard).  Some
disadvantages of 'outputAsCliCSVFormat' option is that its name is not very descriptive for
users, and as Xuefu mentioned it is universal option even though it should only apply to CSV.
 What do you think?

> Currently when either the CSV or TSV output formats are used in beeline each column is
wrapped in single quotes. Quote wrapping of columns should be optional and the user should
be able to choose the character used to wrap the columns.
