are the "built in" VB.NET functions. Ultimately, however these are
boiled down into MSIL (Microsoft Intermediate Language), just like
equivalent C# or Managed C++ (or COBOL.NET or whatever). So these are
no more than handy shortcuts. CStr() for example, probably results in
the same MSIL as myData.ToString()
