I'm making some helper classes for String, Date and Number. Im running out of methods to add so I could use some suggestions as to what methods to create. Something new would be nice.

My favourite is getRandomDate!! I've never had call to actually use this as pat of the business logic of any program, but it is handy in testing!

I'm a REXX fan from mainframe work in the 1980s. Look at REXX functions for words and strings. I wind up implementing many of these in every new language I use.
Now that's great geek fun. The other side of my personality - business guy - is yelling "Get back to work!" and don't write anything that you don't have a requirement for. If you're coding for fun and your own experience, disregard that voice.
