It's frustrating to be dealing with these simple problems (and I know
the fault is mine, i'm missing something).
I'm running word count (from 0.20-2) on a gzip file (very small), the
output has binary characters.
When I run the same on the ungzipped file, the output is correct ascii.
I'm using the native gzip library. The command is
hadoop jar /usr/lib/hadoop-0.20/hadoop-examples-0.20.2-CDH3B4.jar
wordcount /user/sguha/tmp/o.zip /user/sguha/tmp/o.wc.zip
(zip is gzip)
