As far as I know, "assume" isn't a CQL feature, it's only part of cassandra-cli.

I'm using:

I have a column family with a key that is a blob so I query it like this:

    SELECT FIRST 10 1..1344385804 FROM <myCF> WHERE KEY =

Is there any way to avoid the hex I'm using for the key?

I tried the following

    ASSUME <myCF> KEYS ARE text;

but it gave this error:

    Improper assume command.

I'm thinking I've missed something here and hope a kind soul would
point me to a solution.
