If
  -param input=s3n://foo/bar/baz/*/ blah.pig
is part of a command line, you'd have to add quotes:
  -param 'input=s3n://foo/bar/baz/*/' blah.pig
to inhibit your shell from trying to interpret the *.

Subject: Possible Pig 9.1 globing bug in parameter substitution

when using -param input=s3n://foo/bar/baz/*/ blah.pig
it throws 

java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.apache.pig.tools.parameters.ParameterSubstitutionPreprocessor.genSubstitutedFile(ParameterSubstitutionPreprocessor.java:79)

It works when my load statement is changed from:
a = load '$input' using PigStorage();

to

a = load 's3n://foo/bar/baz/*/' using PigStorage();

(I'm under a deadline so can't file a JIRA bug rightaway)
