Thanks for the advice.
Can TOMAP generate a map from tuple using the alias of the field in the
tuple as the key of the map and the field value as the value of the map?
Form the documentation, TOMAP syntax is:
TOMAP(key-expression, value-expression [, key-expression, value-expression
It does not look like it can use the alias of the field as the key... Any
further advice? Thanks!
