Subject [jira] [Created] (IO-410) [IO] Readfully() That Returns A Byte Array
Date Fri, 22 Nov 2013 01:17:35 GMT
BELUGA BEHR created IO-410:

             Summary: [IO] Readfully() That Returns A Byte Array
                 Key: IO-410
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Utilities
            Reporter: BELUGA BEHR
            Priority: Minor

I am looking for an implementation withe the following method signature:

public static byte[] readFully(final InputStream input, long length) throws IOException

I have needed this when parsing different protocols.  For example, if the protocol has a fixed-length
header with 40 bytes, I may just want to instantiate the small buffer with the entire header
and then pick it apart.  In my implementation of my business logic, if the header cannot be
read in then it should throw an exception for being malformed.
