    -d, --debug      Show debug output
    -h, --help       Prints help information
    -V, --version    Prints version information

SUBCOMMANDS:
    cat         Prints the contents of Parquet file(s)
    head        Prints the first n records of the Parquet file
    help        Prints this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)

Subcommand: cat

Prints the contents of the given files and folders. Recursively traverses and prints all the files if the input is a directory. Supports json-like, json or CSV format. Use --json for JSON output, --csv for CSV output with column names in the first row, and --csv-data-only for CSV output without the column names row.

 pqrs cat data/cities.parquet
{continent: "Europe", country: {name: "France", city: ["Paris", "Nice", "Marseilles", "Cannes"]}}
{continent: "Europe", country: {name: "Greece", city: ["Athens", "Piraeus", "Hania", "Heraklion", "Rethymnon", "Fira"]}}
{continent: "North America", country: {name: "Canada", city: ["Toronto", "Vancouver", "St. John's", "Saint John", "Montreal", "Halifax", "Winnipeg", "Calgary", "Saskatoon", "Ottawa", "Yellowknife"]}}
 pqrs cat data/cities.parquet --json
{"continent":"Europe","country":{"name":"France","city":["Paris","Nice","Marseilles","Cannes"]}}
{"continent":"Europe","country":{"name":"Greece","city":["Athens","Piraeus","Hania","Heraklion","Rethymnon","Fira"]}}
{"continent":"North America","country":{"name":"Canada","city":["Toronto","Vancouver","St. John's","Saint John","Montreal","Halifax","Winnipeg","Calgary","Saskatoon","Ottawa","Yellowknife"]}}
 pqrs cat data/simple.parquet --csv
foo,bar

10,20
 pqrs cat data/simple.parquet --csv --no-header
1,2
10,20

NOTE: CSV format is not supported for files that contain Struct or Byte fields.

Subcommand: head

Prints the first N records of the parquet file. Use --records flag to set the number of records.

 pqrs head data/cities.parquet --json --records 2
{"continent":"Europe","country":{"name":"France","city":["Paris","Nice","Marseilles","Cannes"]}}
{"continent":"Europe","country":{"name":"Greece","city":["Athens","Piraeus","Hania","Heraklion","Rethymnon","Fira"]}}

Subcommand: merge

Merge two Parquet files by placing row groups (or blocks) from the two files one after the other.

Disclaimer: This does not combine the files to have optimized row groups, do not use it in production!

 pqrs merge --input data/pems-1.snappy.parquet data/pems-2.snappy.parquet --output data/pems-merged.snappy.parquet
