Creates a new object that is a copy of the current instance.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
can be implemented either as a deep copy or a shallow copy. In a deep copy, all objects are duplicated; in a shallow copy, only the top-level objects are duplicated and the lower levels contain references.
The resulting clone must be of the same type as, or compatible with, the original instance.
See Object.MemberwiseClone for more information on cloning, deep versus shallow copies, and examples.
