      Description

      Some of the users have reported inconsistencies in the hive tutorial and the actual supported syntax. Some of these issues are as follows:

      1. Tutorial refers to SMALLINT which is not supported currently in the Query Language.
      2. References to INSERT INTO instead of INSERT OVERWRITE in the section on udfs.

        Also I don't think the \xxx syntax works for specifying ASCII characters in the delimiter specification sections of CREATE TABLE. The tutorial has them unquoted but I think the literals need to go in single quotes or in some other format.

        Also the LOAD DATA syntax is now different than described in the tutorial
