This interpreter connects to HDFS using the HTTP WebHDFS interface. It supports the basic shell file commands applied to HDFS, it currently only supports browsing.
- You can use ls [PATH] and ls -l [PATH] to list a directory. If the path is missing, then the current directory is listed. ls supports a -h flag for human readable file sizes.
- You can use cd [PATH] to change your current directory by giving a relative or an absolute path.
- You can invoke pwd to see your current directory.
Tip : Use ( Ctrl + . ) for autocompletion.
