The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

Ilja, thanks for the nice pointer on the subject of the thread... I also have been misled to this thread by reading the subject "casting String to?". I am wondering what kind of object rather than Object does the String can cast to?
