    Is there a way to call an operator function from another member function?

    Code:
    I have class C{
    ...
    
    C& operator<<(C& os, const char* str) {
    ...
    }
    
    void display() {
    Is there anyway I can call operator<< in here?
    
    }

    If you don't actually need to directly access any private member variables, then make that member function into a non-member non-friend function.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
