Creates a copy of the current CultureInfo.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The clone is writable even if the original CultureInfo is read-only. Therefore, the properties of the clone can be modified.
A shallow copy of an object is a copy of the object only. If the object contains references to other objects, the shallow copy does not create copies of the referred objects. It refers to the original objects instead. In contrast, a deep copy of an object creates a copy of the object and a copy of everything directly or indirectly referenced by that object.
The method creates an enhanced shallow copy. The objects returned by the NumberFormat, DateTimeFormat, TextInfo, and Calendar properties are also copied. Consequently, the cloned CultureInfo object can modify its copied properties without affecting the original CultureInfo object.
