Subject [jira] Reopened: (IO-181) LineIterator should implement Iterable

Niall Pemberton reopened IO-181:
--------------------------------


I'm still against this - Iterable != Iterator and breaks the Iterable contract. Just because
its convenient doesn't mean its a good idea. I think this will cause confusion and people
to mis-use it, whatever the javadocs say.

> org.apache.commons.io.LineIterator does not implement Iterable.  This makes
> it impossible to use in certain stylized ways, such as in a new-style for
> statement.  Such use is not always desirable (it might temporarily leak a
> file descriptor, until the finalizer is called), but should be possible in
> situations where it is known to be acceptable.
