                 Key: IO-318
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-318
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: New Feature
         Environment: Apache Maven 3.0.4 (r1232337; 2012-01-17 03:44:56-0500)
Maven home: C:\Java\apache-maven-3.0.4\bin\..
Java version: 1.7.0_03, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_03\jre

OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"
            Reporter: Gary D. Gregory
             Fix For: 2.3


Add Charset sister APIs to method that take a String charset name (aka encoding). 
For example: foo(..., String charsetName) -> foo(..., Charset charset).
Refactor such that we do not have code duplication of the algorithms.

Known issue: Source compatibility.

Now there are APIs that change only by the last type, String vs. Charset, you will get a compile
error if you pass null to the API because the target method will be ambiguous, so you have
to type cast to one type or the other.
