Re: hdfs directory location
       You are creating a dir in hdfs by that command. The dir won't be in your local file system but it hdfs. Issue a command like
hadoop fs -ls /user/hadoop-user/citation/
You can see the dir you created in hdfs

If you want to create a die on local unix use a simple linux command
mkdir /user/hadoop-user/citation/input

I am using following command to create a file in Unix(i.e. mac) system.

bin/hadoop fs -mkdir /user/hadoop-user/citation/input

While it creates the directory I need, I am struggling to figure out exact location of the folder in my local box.
