Operator Overloading

Operator Overloading - language feature

< >
Example from Python, Cython:
# Python Program illustrate how # to overload an binary + operator class A: def __init__(self, a): self.a = a # adding two objects def __add__(self, o): return self.a + o.a ob1 = A(1) ob2 = A(2) ob3 = A("Geeks") ob4 = A("For") print(ob1 + ob2) print(ob3 + ob4)
Example from C3:
fn int IntList.get(IntList* this, int idx) @operator([]) { return this.vals[idx]; } ... IntList x = ... foo(x[1]);
Example from Wolfram Language:
f[x_Integer] := x^2; f[x_String] := "not a number"; f[x_Symbol] := x^2;
Example from Speedie:
str = "a" + "b" array <~ str
