Description

Could we alias File.empty? to File.zero? ?

The latter already exists. I tried to use File.empty?
and then thought it would not exist, but the code
already exists, it is just called File.zero? instead.

I added a comment on issue #10121 before knowing this specific issue already existed.

I just wanted to say that, with the arrival of Dir.empty?, I like the idea of the File.empty? alias for the reason of having some symmetry between Dir and File methods.

OK, agreed.
