You can use RANK to append the line number to each record:
A = LOAD 'input.txt' AS (id);
B = RANK A;
C = FILTER B BY id == 'item17';
D = FOREACH C GENERATE rank_A;
This will return the row number of id 'item17'. RANK is added in Pig 0.11,
which hasn't been released yet. If you want to use it before the release,
you will have to build Pig from branch 0.11 by yourself. Here is the JIRA:
