Re: RegionSplitter command
Hi Anil,

bin/hbase org.apache.hadoop.hbase.util.RegionSplitter -c 60 -f f1 test

is working for me.

So your 2nd line should work. I'm not sure if it's because of the
version since I'm using 0.94.4.

Can you upgrade your version and retry? Or you need to stay with 0.92.1?
