Returns a reference to this instance of string.
This instance of string.
The return value is not an independent copy of this instance; it is simply another view of the same data. Use the string.Copy(string) or string.CopyTo(int, Char, int, int) method to create a separate string object with the same value as this instance.
Because the string.Clone method simply returns the existing string instance, there is little reason to call it directly.
