Sawzall is an interpreted, procedural, domain-specific programming language, used specifically by Google, to handle huge quantities of data.
Sawzall is built upon existing infrastructure at Google: Protocol Buffers, the Google File System, the Workqueue, and MapReduce.
This complete Sawzall program will read the input and produce three results: the number of records, the sum of the values,
and the sum of the squares of the values.
count: table sum of int;
total: table sum of float;
sum_of_squares: table sum of float;
x: float = input;
emit count <- 1;
emit total <- x;
emit sum_of_squares <- x * x;
