I get a different response from dfs -ls depending on whether or not the
ls contained a directory or a wildcard. The wild card misses the
response that tells me how many files.
It did indeed cause a problem with my scripts. It was easy to filter
out. If it's a desired action to do it sometimes and others then that's
it's ok. It doesn't seem like this is really the intention so I pointed
it out. My script is now happy with both forms. I do really on the fact
that the 3 column of the output is the file size. Perhaps I shouldn't be
doing this but I am writing some automated scripts in python to drive
hadoop so it is useful to check file sizes. If you were to provide a
format string that would allow me to place the items in a specific
format then you would be free to change it, whenever, however, you wanted.
