Re: hive -e '<query>' not working in 0.8.0
Sorry guys,  I figured this out.  We have a shell script that sets the env variables and then calls  the standard  hive-0.8.0/bin/hive  "$@" .   The  problem was that the quotes around  $@ were missing and the hive executable was just getting  the first word .

It was just my bad.

Thanks,
Sam
