Subject Re: Find the files which contains a particular String
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 05:34:13 GMT
I believe Hive does not have any feature, which can provide this
information. You may like to write a custom Map / Reduce program and get
the file name being processed as shown below-

((FileSplit) context.getInputSplit()).getPath()

and then emit the file name when an occurrence of the word is found.
