Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-510) Convert StringUtils API to take CharSequence
Date Sun, 07 Feb 2010 07:12:27 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-510:

Note for future changes - don't change javadoc to say 'CharSequence'. I think that makes things
much harder to read. Nicer to keep it with String, yet have the magic of StringBuffer, StrBuilder
and StringBuilder working as well.

> substring can go to subSequence inside code. The general substring method can be replaced
with a subSequence method and substring deprecated(?). One question is whether to implement
a CharSequence.indexOf type method. Given that it's merely a walking method(?!?), this might
be quite handy and would allow a bunch of StringUtils methods to move over.
