Generate a manifest file

You can generate a manifest file for a Delta table that can be used by other processing engines (that is, other than Apache Spark) to read the Delta table. For example, to generate a manifest file that can be used by Presto and Athena to read a Delta table, you run the following:

GENERATE symlink_format_manifest FOR TABLE delta.`/tmp/events`

GENERATE symlink_format_manifest FOR TABLE eventsTable
deltaTable = DeltaTable.forPath(<path-to-delta-table>)
val deltaTable = DeltaTable.forPath(<path-to-delta-table>)
