      Description

      We have GString but not String variants for take and drop.

      @groovy.transform.CompileStatic
      def method() {
          assert 'Foo Bar'.drop(4).toLowerCase() == 'bar'
          assert 'Foo Bar'.take(3).toLowerCase() == 'foo'
      }
      
      method()
      

      You are required to add some superfluous .toString() calls otherwise you get the following errors:

      2 compilation errors:
      
      [Static type checking] - Cannot find matching method java.lang.CharSequence#toLowerCase(). Please check if the declared type is correct and if the method exists.
