Operators are tokens that trigger some computation when applied to variables and other objects in an expression.

All operators can be overloaded except the following:


C++ direct component selector


C++ dereference


C++ scope access/resolution



Depending on context, the same operator can have more than one meaning. For example, the ampersand (&) can be interpreted as:

  • a bitwise AND (A & B)
  • an address operator (&A)
  • in C++, a reference modifier

Note: No spaces are allowed in compound operators. Spaces change the meaning of the operator and will generate an error.
