A .NET string-ID library, using Beizsoft.Interning and Beizsoft.NullAwareEquality to offer an optimized mechanism for keying values by strings.

The Name<TStringComparer> class contains a string value and its pre-calculated hash. All instances of Name<TStringComparer> are interned, meaning each string will have only once Name<TStringComparer> instance (per string comparer used). The static Name class provides a .For(string content) method using the NullAwareOrdinalStringComparer as the default comparer.

The Name<TStringComparer>.For method is used to get or create the singular Name instance associated with any given string, which can then be compared using its public Hash field and ReferenceEquals with other Names of the same type. Names which are implemented using a different INullAwareEqualityComparer<string> are not considered equal.

Name<TStringComparer>.Comparer.Instance provides a single-instance INullAwareEqualityComparer<Name<TStringComparer>> to use when comparing Name<TStringComparer>s. This class can also be instantiated, to allow for its use in generic methods with a new() constraint.

Names are designed for use-cases where Name.For can be called as few times as possible, or where the calls are non-performance-critical. Their ideal use-case is as dictionary keys, avoiding the cost of hashing for every addition, removal and lookup.

The in-built NullAwareOrdinalStringComparer could be re-worked to remove a single null check when comparing two strings which are both known not to be null (NotNullEquals), but for simplicity, the NullAwareOrdinalStringComparer class uses the in-built string-comparison functionality. A separate package may be added to cover this optimization.
