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; whereas, 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 a compatible type to the original instance.
See MemberwiseClone for more information on cloning, deep vs. shallow copies, and examples.
