Extra character "U'"


Hi all,

When I write a RDD into a text file, I am getting extra character ===> “u’”
in front of the column, what is that character, how do we ignore that character?

You need to convert your data into string/text before writing it to text file.

More details: What does the u stand for in the RDD's print? Thanks
