String.Clone Method

Definition

Returns a reference to this instance of String.

public object Clone ();
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.
