 * <p>This class delivers some simple functionality that should really

 * classes, such as the ability to {@link #replace} all occurrences of a given
 * substring in a target string. It also provides easy-to-use methods to
 * convert between delimited strings, such as CSV strings, and collections and
 * arrays.
