src/io/utf8.c: Does the amount read in Parrot_io_read_utf8() need to be checked?

This ticket moves into Trac discussion of an issue originally tracked in RT at  RT #46413.

In that RT, Paul Cochrane cited lines in the file now known as src/io/utf8.c:

 46 size_t
 47 Parrot_io_read_utf8(PARROT_INTERP, ARGMOD(PMC *filehandle),
 48         ARGMOD(STRING **buf))
 49 {
 83                 /* RT#46413 need to check the amount read here? */
 84                 read         = Parrot_io_read_buffer(interp, filehandle, &s2    );          
 85                 UNUSED(read);

Paul commented, "At present this variable is marked UNUSED(read). However, it might be a good idea to actually check the amount read in this function call. After which the UNUSED() needs to disappear."

Can someone follow up?

Reviewing this old ticket today leads me to ask, "Can anyone suggest what we might do with the amount read here?"

If not, I will remove the TODO item and close this ticket within 7 days.

Thank you very much.

No one spoke up to suggest "something we might do with the amount read" there, so I eliminated the comment in r48777. Closing ticket.

Thank you very much.
