Closing StreamReader after ReadToEnd

Is it possible somehow to close StreamReader after calling ReadToEnd method in construction like this:

string s = new StreamReader("filename", Encoding.UTF8).ReadToEnd();

Any alternative elegant construction with the same semantics will be also accepted.


I think the method you're really after is File.ReadAllText, if you're just trying to read all the text from a file in the shortest possible code.

If you don't specify the encoding, it will use UTF-8 automatically.
