             Summary: ClosedOutputStream#flush should throw
                 Key: IO-546
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Streams/Writers
            Reporter: Tomas Celaya
            Priority: Minor

While debugging an issue involving usage of {{CloseShieldOutputStream}} I 
discovered that {{ClosedOutputStream#flush}} is not overridden and will 
silently succeed. Not sure how much of a breaking change this might be but I 
think it makes more sense for {{ClosedOutputStream#flush}} to throw. This is 
only really meaningful in contexts where multiple streams are being chained 
together and some of the streams before {{CloseShieldOutputStream}} perform 
buffering, but it would make behavior more consistent for these more complex 

No patches are included because I'm interested in hearing what the opinion 
would be on this issue. I can provide a patch if this seems like desired
