Milind Bhandarkar commented on PIG-796:
---------------------------------------

Can't the user simply do:

{code}
foreach input generate (chararray)((int)mymap#'key') as myvalue;
{code}

Minimizing implicit casting is a good thing (tm) anyway.

> support  conversion from numeric types to chararray
