BrString code sugar around string

This class is developed because PHP sometimes is very confusing in parameters and calling conventions.

You don't need to create objects of this class directly, rather use br() magic function. For example:

$s = br('Some string');

In most cases you don't even need BrString itself but need it's great functions. For example:

echo(br('Some string')->trim());

if (br($fileName)->like('%txt')) {
  echo('Text file');

if (br($fileName)->match('|txt$|')) {
  echo('Also text file');

echo(br('Some string')->indexOf('ome'));
