Re: Use Filename in Tuple
Similarly, is it possible to insert some literal values to a tuple stream?

For example, when I invoke my Pig script, I already know what data source is
(say, it's from filename_2011-02-03), so I can just pass it to Pig using
-param, and I want to insert this known file name to the tuple stream. How
can I do that?

Example, I have:

grunt> A = LOAD 'aa' AS (f1, f2);
grunt> DUMP A;

I want to do something like:

grunt> B = FOREACH A GENERATE f1, "filename-2011-02-03";
