This class consists of an immutable array of
Char characters and built-in helper functions.
Methods that appear to modify a string, such as
Concat(), actually create and return a new
String object. To modify a string directly,
System.Text.StringBuilder class. This can enhance
performance in some routines that make intensive use of string-manipulation
String is aliased as
A string is slightly unusual because it is a reference type that behaves
like a value type for comparison and assignment operations. Two
String objects with the same content but different
locations in memory return
true when tested for equality. Also,
String to another clones the
string itself, rather than just duplicating the reference.
On the other hand, a
String is a fully featured
object with a
Length property and a wide
variety of methods for the following: padding or trimming specified characters on either side,
converting case, performing inline substitutions (with
Replace()), and dividing a string into an array
of strings (with
Split()). There’s also a
default indexer that lets you retrieve a single character. Note that strings
are zero-based, and the first character is
You can create a string made up of a single repeated character by using an
alternate constructor and supplying a
the number of repetitions.
