      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      A FileReader constructor should take a Charset.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      Currently you have to use an InputStreamReader wrapping a FileInputStream to put in a Charset.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      FileReader fr = new FileReader( file, charset );
      ACTUAL -
      Reader r = new InputStreamReader( new FileInputStream( file ), charset );

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Reader r = new InputStreamReader( new FileInputStream( file ), charset );
