[jira] [Commented] (IO-363) FileUtils.readFileToString((new File("myFile"), null) produces the following compilation error

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-363?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13542547#comment-13542547 ]

Gary Gregory commented on IO-363:
---------------------------------

If you really want to pass in null, then you can say:

{code:java}
FileUtils.readFileToString(new File("myFile"), (String)null)
{code}

This is better IMO:

{code:java}
FileUtils.readFileToString(new File("myFile"), Charset.defaultCharset())
{code}

> org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.readFileToString(new File("myFile"), null) in 2.4 produces the following compilation error "The method readFileToString(File, Charset) is ambiguous for the type FileUtils", even though the javadoc says "encoding - the encoding to use, null means platform default".
> This is due to FileUtils having 2 readFileToString methods -  readFileToString(File file, Charset encoding) and readFileToString(File file,
> String encoding)
