Olga Natkovich resolved PIG-48.

    Resolution: Fixed

This can already be done with custom splits

> LoadFunc API is too limiting
> ----------------------------
>                 Key: PIG-48
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-48
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Sam Pullara
>            Priority: Minor
> Currently the LoadFunc API assumes that you are pulling data from a Hadoop 
> filesystem and that PIG will have already found the file and split it.  I 
> would like a lower-level API that hands me the information so I can find the 
> data and do the split.  For instance, this is a very inconvenient way to load 
> data from an RSS URL:
> register /Users/samp/Projects/pigrss/out/getfeed-all.jar
> define getFeed com.sampullara.pig.storage.GetFeed();
> URL = LOAD 'url' using PigStorage() as (url);
> Where GetFeed is an EvalFunc because there was no way to do this as a 
> LoadFunc.  While we are at we could add the ability to create a literal Tuple 
> in the PIG language :)
