Operator overloading provides an inherent interface to the users of our class, making it possible to work equally well with classes and built-in data types. Operator overloading in C++ allows operators to have user-defined meanings on user defined types.
This article will discuss overloading using friend functions.

There are three methods to do operator overloading in C++, they are

Overloading unary operators.
