GitHub user jianqiao opened a pull request:


    Add "COPY TO" operator for exporting data from Quickstep.

    This PR adds support for the "COPY TO" statement for exporting tables from Quickstep.
Two formats `TEXT` and `CSV` are supported.
    The current available copy options are:
    - `FORMAT`: Format of the output file, either `TEXT` or `CSV`.
    - `DELIMITER`: Separator character of the fields.
    - `HEADER`: Whether to add table header. For `CSV` format only.
    - `QUOTE`: The quote character. For `CSV` format only.
    - `ESCAPE_STRINGS`: Whether to escape special characters. For `TEXT` format only.
    - `NULL_STRING`: The string representation of the `NULL` value.
    See the example queries and results [here](https://github.com/apache/incubator-quickstep/blob/a036acb446f137fea263ae218ef12f337f5bc1a1/query_optimizer/tests/execution_generator/Copy.test).

    Note that some convenient features are also provided:
    - Export the result table from a query.
    -- (1) --
      SELECT x FROM r
    TO 'data.txt';
    -- (2) --
    WITH s(v) AS (
      SELECT AVG(v) FROM s
    TO 'results.csv';
    - Print to standard output/error stream, e.g.
    -- (1) --
    COPY r TO stdout;
    -- (2) --
      SELECT x FROM r
    TO stderr;
