+1 for the patch.

>                 Key: PIG-656
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-656
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: documentation, grunt
>    Affects Versions: 0.2.1
>            Reporter: Viraj Bhat
>            Assignee: Milind Bhandarkar
>             Fix For: 0.3.0

>         Attachments: mywordcount.txt, reserved.patch, TOKENIZE.jar

> Consider a Pig script which does something similar to a word count. It uses 
> the built-in TOKENIZE function, but packages it inside a class hierarchy such 
> as "mypackage.eval"
> {code}
> register TOKENIZE.jar
> my_src  = LOAD '/user/viraj/mywordcount.txt' USING PigStorage('\t')  AS 
> (mlist: chararray);
> modules = FOREACH my_src GENERATE FLATTEN(mypackage.eval.TOKENIZE(mlist));
> describe modules;
> grouped = GROUP modules BY $0;
> describe grouped;
> counts  = FOREACH grouped GENERATE COUNT(modules), group;
> ordered = ORDER counts BY $0;
> dump ordered;
> {code}
> The parser complains:
> ===========================================================================================================================
> 2009-02-05 01:17:29,231 [main] ERROR org.apache.pig.tools.grunt.Grunt - ERROR 
> 1000: Error during parsing. Invalid alias: mypackage in {mlist: chararray}
> ===========================================================================================================================
> I looked at the following source code at 
> (src/org/apache/pig/impl/logicalLayer/parser/QueryParser.jjt) and it seems 
> that : EVAL is a keyword in Pig. Here are some clarifications:
> 1) Is there documentation on what the EVAL keyword actually is?
> 2) Is EVAL keyword actually implemented?
