> I suggest adding versions of the utility methods for reading lines and Strings from a
file that also accept a limit on the number of bytes or lines that should be read. I propose
that the following methods be added:
> String readFileToString(File file, long byteCountToRead)
> String readFileToString(File file, String encoding, long byteCountToRead)
> byte[] readFileToByteArray(File file, long byteCountToRead)
> byte[] readFileToByteArray(File file, String encoding, long byteCountToRead)
> List<String> readLines(File file, long lineCountToRead)
> List<String> readLines(File file, String encoding, long lineCountToRead)
> One of the drawbacks I have encountered to using the methods in the past is that I only
needed to read a limited number of bytes or lines from a file and I had to read the entire
file. This can be especially dangerous if run on a file that is quite large, and only a portion
of the file is needed.
