Elton Nunes commented on LANG-1284:
-----------------------------------

Maybe the better is a warning in the Javadoc.

>                 Key: LANG-1284
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1284
>             Project: Commons Lang
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 3.5
>            Reporter: Arul Nedumaran
>
> The following code goes into an infinite loop.
> {code}
> RandomStringUtils.random(1, 0, 0, false, true, new char[]{ 'a' })
> {code}
> I know it doesn't make sense to pass letters=false and then a letter array, but a bug
in the caller's code will make him fall into this trap.
