Conditional execution of 'generate' clauses
Hi Folks,

I came across a use case where I'd like to do something like this:

FOREACH X {
   ...
   t = DISTINCT (...)
   if (!IsEmpty(t))
      GENERATE foo, ...
}

Thus, 'generate' is conditionally executed and the control flow depends on
the value of some tuple 't'.
Can this be done in pig?

Thanks,

stan
