concatenating tuples into one tuple?
I have a postgrouping relation:
a = { id: chararray, bitmap{ (value_binary: int) } },
where the value_binary tuples are singleelement tuples that have been sortedthe order of the singleelement tuples is important. All the "bitmap" bags are guaranteed to have the same number of single element tuples, but that number is arbitrary. That is, I can't depend in advance on knowing how many tuples there will be in "bitmap", but I can depend on each bitmap having the same number of tuples. An example of an instance with 5 tuples:
9 {(1),(0),(0),(0),(0)}
Would need to become:
9 {(1,0,0,0,0)}
...concatenating those tuples into one tuple, preserving the order, again without having advance knowledge of how many tuples will be in "bitmap". I can't figure out how to do it.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions... Steve

RE: concatenating tuples into one tuple?
Here's one sloppy solution:
rmf temp; STORE a INTO 'temp'; load the bag as a chararray and morph it to my will new = LOAD 'temp' USING PigStorage() AS ( id: chararray, bitmap: chararray );  remove all the {()} and strong split into a tuple on the commas i = FOREACH new GENERATE id, STRSPLIT( REPLACE(bitmap,'[\\{\\(\\)\\} ]',''), ',', 99999) AS bitmap ;
So this works, but it's actually supposed to be part of a macro (new for us, and I didn't try yet, but the doc says we can't execute grunt shell commands in a Macro, so we wouldn't be able to "rmf temp";)
Still seems like I'm missing something on how to dereference the elements to get what I want directly. Steve Original Message
