Hi Matthew, in my post on QA [^], I published a method that extends 'string with the comment:
Quote:
imho, you do pay a price for either one: the first example extends string; I think extending basic types is generally a mistake. In the second example, you pay a price for the rather awkward structure of the calling format.
i explored this more esoteric approach ... extending an Enum ... because i try to avoid extending basic types, like 'string ... a personal preference.

Glad to have your input, and hope to hear more from you, cheers, Bill
