Subject Re: issue with space in command line arguments for pig script
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2009 04:22:31 GMT
Hi Alan, 

I am using it in Group BY. Also, I tried with empty pig script by just touching a file called
test.pig and tried to run. I got same error. The error is pasted below: 

java.lang.RuntimeException: You can only run one pig script at a time from the command line.

at org.apache.pig.Main.main(Main.java:289) 

Please find below script and the way I am firing it at command line: 


raw = LOAD '/user/ppallavi/' USING PigStorage('\t') ; 
clickAggr = GROUP raw by ($0, '$date') PARALLEL 10; 
clickCounts = FOREACH clickAggr GENERATE FLATTEN(group), COUNT($1); 
distinctclickCounts = DISTINCT clickCounts; 
STORE distinctclickCounts INTO '/somelocation/ClickCounts/' using PigStorage('\t'); 

Here is how I am calling this script from command line: 
bin/pig -param date="2009-06-01 01" test.pig 

If I don't use space, it is working perfectly fine. I am using hadoop-18.2 and the pig checked
out from types branch.

Can you give an example of your script. I tried passing a space to 
PigStorage for the column separator and it worked fine. Are you 
passing this to an EvalFunc or a LoadFunc?
