    aren't they overload operators? I'm pretty sure that's what they're called.

    I believe they are call insertion and extraction operators (I am assuming you're not referring to the bit-shift operators)

    They are usually called "put to" and "get from" respectively. Others like to call them inserters and extractors. It's more geekish that way

    No matter what your question is not innocent as it may seem. Fact is not even Stroustrup gave them a name. He keeps calling them the << operator and >> operator.
