Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-157) [FileUtils] Return target File from copyFileToDirectory()
Date Sun, 07 Mar 2010 11:13:27 GMT


Niall Pemberton commented on IO-157:

I also don't see how changing a return type from "void" to return something is going to ever
break compatibility for someone. However nothing has changed since Stephens comment - we were

> It would be useful if the FileUtils.copyFileToDirectory() method returned the target
file to which it does the copy.  Currently, it creates the target File object, passes it to
copyFile(), and discards the reference.  This could just be returned from the method instead.
