Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-5999) Allow other characters for LINES TERMINATED BY
Date Sun, 24 Mar 2019 03:37:00 GMT


Michael Chirico commented on HIVE-5999:

[~nemon] what ever happened to the patch here? This would still be an incredibly useful feature
as embedded newlines are of course ubiquitous for day-to-day data tasks. Any free text field
is bound to have embedded newlines, given enough observations...

> LINES TERMINATED BY only supports newline '\n' right now.
> It would be nice to loosen this constraint and allow other characters.
> This limitation seems to be hardcoded here:
> The DDL Definition on the Hive Language manual shows this as a configurable property
whereas it is not. This may lead to mileading assement of being able to choose a choice of
field delimiter.
