Re: Is there a way to view multiple versions of a cell in the HBase shell?
Hey Natty,

hbase(main):020:0> get 't','r', { COLUMN => 'f', VERSIONS => 2 }
COLUMN                                     CELL
 f:l                                       timestamp=1362676782345,
value=value2
 f:l                                       timestamp=1362676779492,
value=value1
2 row(s) in 0.0120 seconds

:)
