// Copied from strings/stringpiece.h with modifications
// A string-like object that points to a sized piece of memory.
// You can use StringPiece as a function or method parameter. A StringPiece
// parameter can receive a double-quoted string literal argument, a "const
// char*" argument, a string argument, or a StringPiece argument with no data
// copying. Systematic use of StringPiece for arguments reduces data
// copies and strlen() calls.
// Prefer passing StringPieces by value:
// void MyFunction(StringPiece arg);
// If circumstances require, you may also pass by const reference:
// void MyFunction(const StringPiece& arg); // not preferred
// Both of these have the same lifetime semantics. Passing by value
// generates slightly smaller code. For more discussion, Googlers can see
// the thread go/stringpiecebyvalue on c-users.
