  • You have loaded this file into Pig with a relation named exp_data as given below.
grunt> exp_data = LOAD 'hdfs://localhost:9000/pig_data/wikitechy_exp.txt' USING PigStorage(',')
   as (data:float);
  • You compute the exp values of the contents of the wikitechy_exp.txt file using EXP() function as given below.
grunt> exp_data = foreach math_data generate (data), EXP(data);

The above statement stores the result in the relation named exp_data.
