Returns a reference to this instance of String.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
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 method simply returns the existing string instance, there is little reason to call it directly.
