MonthsBetween returns the number of months between two DateTime objects

  • Jodatime:
  • ISO8601 Date Format:

 Example usage:

 ISOin = LOAD 'test.tsv' USING PigStorage('\t') AS (datetime, dt2:datetime);

 ISOin: {dt: datetime,dt2: datetime}

 DaysBetween(dt, dt2) AS days,
 HoursBetween(dt, dt2) AS hours,
 MinutesBetween(dt, dt2) AS mins,
 SecondsBetween(dt, dt2) AS secs;
 MilliSecondsBetween(dt, dt2) AS millis;

 DESCRIBE diffs;
