Subject RCFILE and "\n" characters
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2014 01:17:08 GMT
The example below shows that the RCFILE SerDe doesn't handle "\n" in string
fields correctly.

It seem that the SerDe uses "\n" internally as a record delimiter but it's
failing to de/serialize it correctly when it appears within a field. Is
that correct?

Any ideas on how to work around that?

Thanks,
Andre
