      Description

      Running "mapred pipes" returns:

      bin/hadoop pipes
        [-input <path>] // Input directory
        [-output <path>] // Output directory
        [-jar <jar file> // jar filename
        [-inputformat <class>] // InputFormat class
        [-map <class>] // Java Map class
        [-partitioner <class>] // Java Partitioner
        [-reduce <class>] // Java Reduce class
        [-writer <class>] // Java RecordWriter
        [-program <executable>] // executable URI
        [-reduces <num>] // number of reduces
        [-lazyOutput <true/false>] // createOutputLazily
      

      No Hadoop CLI uses // comments in the help. Most of them follow the
      pattern similar to UNIX/Linux man page styling:

      usage: CMD OPTIONS
      OPTIONS/SUBCMD-BLOCK
      
      OPTION/SUBCMD-DEFINITION-BLOCK
      

      It should be look like this since the comments are really redundant:

      usage: bin/mapred pipes
        [-input <path>] 
        [-output <path>] 
        [-jar <jar file>]
        [-inputformat <class>] 
        [-map <class>] 
        [-partitioner <class>] 
        [-reduce <class>] 
        [-writer <class>] 
        [-program <executable URI>] 
        [-reduces <num>] 
        [-lazyOutput <true/false>] 
      

      then the parameters can be expanded upon in the section below.
