Read a File into a String using a single statement

Writing by on Monday, 18 of November , 2013 at 6:08 am

I’ve found that java.util.Scanner class instead of the classes to work well for most of my text file reading and parsing needs.

String content = new Scanner(new File("/path/to/file.txt")).useDelimiter("\\Z").next();

For more info read up natch3z or coderwall.
