abstract member Clone : unit -> obj

Returns

This instance of String.

Remarks

The return value is not an independent copy of this instance; it is simply another view of the same data. Use the Copy or CopyTo method to create a separate String object with the same value as this instance.

Because the Clone method simply returns the existing string instance, there is little reason to call it directly.
