  extended by org.apache.pig.EvalFunc<Double>
      extended by org.apache.pig.builtin.ABS

public class ABS
extends EvalFunc<Double>

ABS implements a binding to the Java function Math.abs(double) for computing the absolute value of the argument. The returned value will be a double which is absolute value of the input.

Constructor Detail

ABS

public ABS()
Method Detail

exec

public Double exec(Tuple input)
            throws IOException
java level API

Specified by:
exec in class EvalFunc<Double>
Parameters:
input - expects a single numeric value
Returns:
output returns a single numeric value, absolute value of the argument
Throws:
IOException

outputSchema

public Schema outputSchema(Schema input)
Description copied from class: EvalFunc
Report the schema of the output of this UDF. Pig will make use of this in error checking, optimization, and planning. The schema of input data to this UDF is provided.

Overrides:
outputSchema in class EvalFunc<Double>
Parameters:
input - Schema of the input
Returns:
Schema of the output

getArgToFuncMapping

public List<FuncSpec> getArgToFuncMapping()
                                   throws FrontendException
Description copied from class: EvalFunc
Allow a UDF to specify type specific implementations of itself. For example, an implementation of arithmetic sum might have int and float implementations, since integer arithmetic performs much better than floating point arithmetic. Pig's typechecker will call this method and using the returned list plus the schema of the function's input data, decide which implementation of the UDF to use.

Overrides:
getArgToFuncMapping in class EvalFunc<Double>
Returns:
A List containing FuncSpec objects representing the EvalFunc class which can handle the inputs corresponding to the schema in the objects. Each FuncSpec should be constructed with a schema that describes the input for that implementation. For example, the sum function above would return two elements in its list:
  1. FuncSpec(this.getClass().getName(), new Schema(new Schema.FieldSchema(null, DataType.DOUBLE)))
  2. FuncSpec(IntSum.getClass().getName(), new Schema(new Schema.FieldSchema(null, DataType.INTEGER)))
This would indicate that the main implementation is used for doubles, and the special implementation IntSum is used for ints.
Throws:
FrontendException
