Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11120) hadoop fs -rmr gives wrong advice
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2014 22:06:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11120?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14146954#comment-14146954

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-11120:

bq. I believe you might have got the full error message as below

Nope.  See this screenshot.  (which, as an added bonus, also features HADOOP-11119!)

We clearly have two code paths in play, which makes this even worse.

bq. And to use any commands with fsshell we should prefix them with '-'.

...which is why we should be explicit to users about what we want them to do.  Hoping they
correctly guess our intentions is terrible design.
