What is TOBAG() in Apache Pig ?

  • The TOBAG() function of Pig Latin converts one or more expressions to individual tuples.
  • And these tuples are placed in a bag.


TOBAG(expression [, expression ...])


  • Assume we have a file named wikitechy_emp_details.txt in the HDFS directory /pig_data/, with the following content.


  • You have loaded this file into Pig with the relation name wikitechy_emp_data as given below.
grunt> wikitechy_emp_data = LOAD 'hdfs://localhost:9000/pig_data/wikitechy_emp_details.txt' USING PigStorage(',')
   as (id:int, name:chararray, age:int, city:chararray);
  • Now convert the id, name, age and city, of each employee (record) into a tuple as given below.
tobag = FOREACH wikitechy_emp_data GENERATE TOBAG (id,name,age,city);
