How many purposes are there for toString().One I know is to give meaning to an object, despite getting any ununderstandable code.
Tell me other uses.

Isn't that enough for it to do? I trust you have read about it in the Object class?

toString() has one and only intention is to give a meaning human understandable String to an Object.
