Passing semicolon as a parameter in UDF causes parser error 

                 Key: PIG-731
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: grunt
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Viraj Bhat
             Fix For: 1.0.1

Pig script, which uses a UDF  loads in 3 chararray columns, and then 
concatenates columns 2 and 3 using a semicolon.
register CONCATSEP.jar;
A = LOAD 'someinput/*' USING PigStorage(';') as 
B = FOREACH A GENERATE col1, string.CONCATSEP(';',col2,col3) as newcol;
STORE B INTO 'someoutput' USING PigStorage(';');

The following script causes an error during the parsing stage due to the 
semicolon present in the UDF.
2009-03-24 15:50:56,454 [main] ERROR - ERROR 
1000: Error during parsing. Lexical error at line 3, column 49.  Encountered: 
<EOF> after : "\';"
Details at logfile: /homes/viraj/pig-svn/trunk/pig_1237935055635.log

There is no workaround for the same, expect to hardcode this in the UDF.
