Re: executing linux command from hadoop (python)
Yes it would work with streaming, but note that if your os.system(…)
call produces any stdout prints, they are treated as task output and
are sent to HDFS/Reducers.

P.s. I assume the example you've produced is naive but if it is not,
re-consider appending all those strings together. You don't want to be
holding so much data in memory when run over large files, and nor
would a command support lengths as long as, say, a 64 MB input block.
