The function ‘rmf’ for forced removal is no longer (0.9.0) mentioned, except that it is a reserved word, in the user docs for pig. It was documented in the 0.8.1. I wonder -- is this function deprecated? Will it go away in a future version of pig? I have found rmf useful since I can’t find a way around ‘fs -rm’ throwing an error on a non-existing file.
