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

Gilles Sadowski (Jira)
Peter Warde created IO-363:
------------------------------

             Summary: FileUtils.readFileToString((new File("myFile"), null)  produces the following compilation error
                 Key: IO-363
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-363
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Peter Warde
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.4


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)
