Pradeep Kamath commented on PIG-891:

There have been some discussions around whether hadoop commands should be 
supported through hadoop fsShell - see 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-79. I think that option should be 
explored before expanding pig's grunt shell - it would cleaner to not have that 
code in pig since truely hadoop commands should be handled by hadoop's utility 
code (fsShell). 

> Fixing dfs statement for Pig
> ----------------------------
>                 Key: PIG-891
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-891
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Daniel Dai
>            Assignee: Jeff Zhang
>            Priority: Minor
> Several hadoop dfs commands are not support or restrictive on current Pig. We 
> need to fix that. These include:
> 1. Several commands do not supported: lsr, dus, count, rmr, expunge, put, 
> moveFromLocal, get, getmerge, text, moveToLocal, mkdir, touchz, test, stat, 
> tail, chmod, chown, chgrp. A reference for these command can be found in 
> http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/current/hdfs_shell.html
> 2. All existing dfs commands do not support globing.
> 3. Pig should provide a programmatic way to perform dfs commands. Several of 
> them exist in PigServer, but not all of them.
