UploadedTestFile should respond_to? :read and other tempfile methods

Reported by will bailey | February 7th, 2010 @ 07:20 PM

I discovered this bug while testing file uploading in an app I'm working on. While accessing the uploaded data I'm differentiating between String and StringIO/TempFile by checking if the object respond_to?(:read). In testing with TestUploadedFile I discovered that it does not correctly report that it respond_to?(:read) as this is handled through method missing. This patch runs the respond_to? on the tempfile as well as the TestUploadedFile yielding a result that more closely matches what you see in an actual request.

    One fix to your patch: you should use original_respond_to instead of respond_to.

    I believe there is no need to use aliases, you can simply call super.
