Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIG-1822) Need to document how types work in Pig

Olga Natkovich commented on PIG-1822:
-------------------------------------

While figuring out what information is missing from the type related documentation, I found
that we have duplicated paragraphs under Schema section: 

Schemas
Schemas enable you to assign names to fields and declare types for fields. Schemas are optional
but we encourage you to use them whenever possible; type declarations result in better parse-time
error checking and more efficient code execution.

Schemas for simple types and complex types can be used anywhere a schema definition is appropriate.

Schemas are defined with the LOAD, STREAM, and FOREACH operators using the AS clause. If you
define a schema using the LOAD operator, then it is the load function that enforces the schema
(see LOAD and User Defined Functions for more information).
