Refactoring Ideas: inline method with flag parameter

Check all calls to see if the value of the flag can be analysed, if so inline everywhere (otherwise tell the developer where it is ambiguous):

   public static String pad(final String string, final int length, final char character, final boolean before)
   {
      if(before)
      {
         return leftPad(string, length, character);
      }
      else
      {
         return rightPad(string, length, character);
      }
   }
