HttpRandomAccesContent.getDataInputStream() ignores result of skip()
--------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: VFS-243
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-243
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sebb


HttpRandomAccesContent.getDataInputStream() ignores result of skip()

Findbugs says:

This method ignores the return value of java.io.InputStream.skip() which can skip multiple
bytes.  If the return value is not checked, the caller will not be able to correctly handle
the case where fewer bytes were skipped than the caller requested.  This is a particularly
insidious kind of bug, because in many programs, skips from input streams usually do skip
the full amount of data requested, causing the program to fail only sporadically. With Buffered
streams, however, skip() will only skip data in the buffer, and will routinely fail to skip
the requested number of bytes.
