/**
  This String class provide base functionality for C++ like 8-Bit
  character array handling. The advantage of this class is, that it
  handle all the memory managament for you - and it do it
  more efficient. If you assign a string to another string, the
  data of both strings are shared (without any copy operation or
  memory allocation) as long as you do not change the string. This class
  stores also the length of the string, so that many operations are
  faster as the C-str-functions.

  This class provide only readonly string handling. So you could create
  a string and you could only query the content from this string.
  It provide also functionality to change the string, but this results
  in every case in a new string instance (in the most cases with an
  memory allocation). You don't have functionality to change the
  content of the string. If you want change the string content, than
  you should us the OStringBuffer class, which provide these
  functionality and avoid to much memory allocation.

  The design of this class is similar to the string classes in Java
  and so more people should have fewer understanding problems when they
  use this class.
