Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-269) Shouldn't Commons Lang's StringUtils have a "common" string method?

Scott Johnson commented on LANG-269:

I thought about that when I was naming the methods.  But I wasn't sure a suffix method would
be useful.  

If it will provide value, I can create one.

> A method which accepts a string array and returns a string which is the common portion
of all the strings starting from the left, or more general form of that.
> This is very common operation.  For example, one may want to find the common directory
of a set of path strings.

> "/foo/moo/f2.txt"
> "/foo/moo/f3.txt"

> It is tedious to implement this in every project.  And I think Commons Lang StringUtils
should have some methods to help in this.
