This is analog of scala-hadoop code in imperative style.

Scala-hadoop example has six classes which are much more harder to read & understand than this small 22-LOC file.

Crunch / Scrunch is a simple & efficient FP-style wrapper over hadoop.

The example was taken from Dean Wampler's talk on fp & big data.
