public interface ICloneable


The ICloneable interface enables you to provide a customized implementation that creates a copy of an existing object. The ICloneable interface contains one member, the ICloneable.Clone method, which is intended to provide cloning support beyond that supplied by object.MemberwiseClone. For more information about cloning, deep versus shallow copies, and examples, see the object.MemberwiseClone method.
