Re: Scoring DESCRIBE of an alias
Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for or not, but you could
use PigStorageSchema in piggybank (up to version 0.9 IIRC) or PigStorage
with the '-schema' flag (on the trunk). This will read/write a JSON version
of your describe into HDFS so you don't need to redefine your fields in
future scripts.
