> Some Pig programs repeatedly perform operations on different versions of tables, where
these versions differ only slightly. For example, a program may compute f(T) at one point
and f(T + delta T) at a later point. In many such cases, having already computed f(T) can
allow us to speed up the computation of f(T + delta T). For example, if f is a map operation,
then f(T + delta T) is f(T) + f(delta T), which can be computed relatively rapidly if delta
T is small and f(T) is already known.
> It is already possible but often tedious for Pig programers to perform incremental operations.
It would possibly help if Pig provided syntax for incremental operation.
