### Getting started in 4 steps

1. *Install* with the <a href="http://goo.gl/iekUWH" target="_blank">NuGet Package manager</a>: `PM> Install-Package Core.TypeCast`.  
2. *Add the namespace* to your top-listed using directives: `using Core.TypeCast;`.
3. *Create a class* with one or more methods: `class MyConverter { ... int MyConverter(string argument) ... }`
4. *Attribute* any class with `[ConverterAttribute]`: _`public class MyConverter { ... }`_.    
   Subsequently, attribute the converting methods using `[ConverterMethodAttribute]`: _`public int MyConverter(string attribute){ ... }`__
5. **Done!**

Now, invoke conversions in your code anywhere as follows:
```cs
   var castedInt = "500s".CastTo<int>();
   var protein = "GAGTGCGCCCTCCCCGCACATGCGCCCTGACAGCCCAACAATGGCGGCGCCCGCGGAGTC".ConvertTo<IProtein>();
```
Use library functions which suit the change of type descriptively:

   `var complimentary = "GAGTGCGCCCTCCCCGCACATGCGCCCTGACAGCCCAACAATGGCGGCGCCCGCGGAGTC".Transform<Complementary>();`

### Code Glance

Provided below is an abbreviated example of what code may look like in your project:

```cs
   using System.Runtime.CompilerServices;
   // IPolyNucleotide.cs
   public interface IPolyNucleotide { ... }

   // used for "Tranform-Aliasing"
   delegate DNA Complimentary(string dnaSequence, AModelClass arguments);

   // DNA.cs
   [Converter]
   public class DNA : IPolyNucleotide
   {
       [ConverterMethod]
       protected IProtein ToProtein(string dnaSequence, bool homologyLookup = false)
       {
           ... ...
       }

       [ConverterMethod]
       [MethodImpl(MethodImplOptions.AggressiveInlining)]
       public static DNA Complimentary(string dnaSequence, AModelClass arguments)
       {
           ... ...
       }
       ...
   }
```
