StringSegment Structure

Represents a segment of a string. This type is similar to ReadOnlyMemory<char>/ReadOnlySpan<char> but StringSegment can be used on all platforms in the same way and is optimized for some dedicated string operations.
To create an instance use the AsSegment extension method overloads or just cast a string instance to StringSegment.

Remarks

To create a StringSegment instance from a string you can use the implicit conversion, or the AsSegment extension methods.

To convert a StringSegment instance to string use an explicit cast or the ToString method.

  Note

The StringSegment type may outperform string in scenarios when usual string splitting/trimming operations would allocate long strings.
See a live example with performance test here.

Depending on the used platform some members of the StringSegment type may allocate a new string. The affected members are:

  Note

On .NET Core 3.0 and newer platforms none of the members above allocate a new string. On .NET Standard 2.1/.NET Core 2.1 and newer platforms the IndexOf overloads are not affected.

As opposed to the String class, the default comparison strategy in StringSegment members is Ordinal.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to use the StringSegment type:

C#
using System;
using KGySoft.CoreLibraries;

class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Assignment works from string
        StringSegment segment = "Some string literal";

        // Or by extension methods:
        segment = "Some string literal".AsSegment(); // "Some string literal"
        segment = "Some string literal".AsSegment(0, 4); // "Some"
        segment = "Some string literal".AsSegment(5, 6); // "string"

        // Null assignment: all the following lines have the same effect:
        segment = default(StringSegment); // the fastest way
        segment = StringSegment.Null; // the recommended way
        segment = null; // the cleanest way - same as segment = ((string)null).AsSegment()

        // Null check (remember, StringSegment is a value type with null semantics):
        bool isNull = segment == null; // the cleanest way - same as segment.Equals(((string)null).AsSegment())
        isNull = segment.IsNull; // the fastest and recommended way - same as segment.UnderlyingString == null

        // Slicing:
        segment = "Some string literal";
        Console.WriteLine(segment.Substring(0, 4)); // "Some"
        Console.WriteLine(segment.Substring(5)); // "string literal"
        Console.WriteLine(segment.Split(' ').Count); // 3
        Console.WriteLine(segment.Split(' ')[2]); // "literal"

        // Slicing operations do not allocate new strings:
        StringSegment subsegment = segment.Substring(5);
        subsegment = segment[5..]; // Range indexer is also supported
        Console.WriteLine(subsegment); // "string literal"
        Console.WriteLine(subsegment.UnderlyingString); // "Some string literal"

        // As StringSegment can be implicitly converted to ReadOnlySpan<char> it can be passed
        // to many already existing API accepting spans (in .NET Core 2.1/.NET Standard 2.1 and above):
        int parsedResult = Int32.Parse("Value=42".AsSegment().Split('=')[1]);
    }
}

The following example demonstrates a possible usage of the StringSegment type:
