Jeff Zhang commented on PIG-1110:
---------------------------------

Hi Richard, I checked your code and find that pig use the output file extension 
to determined whether the output should be compressed or non-compressed ( the 
code in trunk also do like this). I do not think this method is good enough, 
because it enforce user to add .bz2 to as the extension of output file. 

My suggestion is as follows:

Add a new constructor to PigStorage like PigStorage(String delimiter, String 
extension)

the extension indicate what file format user want to store
