An assignment operator is the operator used to assign a new value to a variable, property, event or indexer element in C# programming language.
Assignment operators can also be used for logical operations such as bitwise logical operations or operations on integral operands and Boolean operands.
are treated as polymorphic functions and as such have different behaviors depending on the types of its arguments.
Operator overloading is usually only syntactic sugar. Consider this operation: .) Operator overloading can provide more than an aesthetic benefit, since the language allows operators to be invoked implicitly in some circumstances.
Thus any code which attempts to do an assignment will fail on two accounts, first by referencing a private member function and second fail to link by not having a valid definition.
Virtual Assignment Operator
This is done for classes where copying is to be prevented, and generally done with the addition of a privately declared copy constructor All relational operators are binary, and should return either true or false.
Self assignment is generally a sign of a coding error, and thus for classes without raw pointers, this check is often omitted, as while the action is wasteful of cpu cycles, it has no other effect on the code.
Another common use of overloading the assignment operator is to declare the overload in the private part of the class and not define it.
Problems, and critics, to the use of operator overloading arise because it allows programmers to give operators completely free functionality, without an imposition of coherency that permits to consistently satisfy user/reader expectations.
Usage of the is an output stream instead this will write "1" to it.
