    The syntax of the illustrate operator is

    grunt> illustrate Relation_name;


    Assume we have a file student_data.txt in HDFS with the following content.

    001, Aadhira,Arushi,9848022337, Delhi
    002, Mahi,Champa,9848022338, Chennai
    003, Avantika,charu,9848022339, Pune
    004, Samaira,Hansa,9848022330, Kolkata
    005, Abhinav,Akaash,9848022336,Bhuwaneshwar
    006, Amarjeet,Aksat,9848022335, Hyderabad

    And read it into a relation student using the LOAD operator as shown below.

    grunt> student = LOAD 'hdfs://localhost:9000/pig_data/student_data.txt' USING PigStorage(',')
       as ( id:int, firstname:chararray, lastname:chararray, phone:chararray, city:chararray );

    Now, illustrate the relation named student as shown below.

    grunt> illustrate student;


    On executing the above statement, you will get the following output.

    grunt> illustrate student;
