    Default Method

    Hi,

    I am new to C++, passionate about the perspective it offers but still find that the learning curve is somehow steep ;-)

    I am trying to put together a little String object, defining it as a type.

    I would like my object to return its content through a "default" method. That way I could console out the "content" (so to speak) of the String without having to explicitly call its Text (or Value whatever) method.

    Something like
    cout << myString << endl;

    thank you very much !

    Try reading the tutorials this site offers.
    Try to help all less knowledgeable than yourself, within
    the limits provided by time, complexity and tolerance.

    You need to overload operator << for std::ostream and String (and perhaps also >> for std::istream and std::getline).
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
    Quoted more than 1000 times (I hope).
