Re: [Vala] Operator overloading

Java does not support operator overloading.
Python does:

class Complex:
    def __init__(self, x, y):
        self.x = x
        self.y = y
    def __add__(self, other):
        return Complex(self.x + other.x, self.y + other.y)

Even though Python already has complex numbers build into the
language, this is used for types in the standard library such as
decimal, which stores numbers as base-10 to avoid errors that come
with converting base-10 to floating point. As you can imagine, this is
extremely useful for accounting applications.

c# does. Here's a sample syntax:

public static Complex operator +(Complex c1,Complex c2)
 Complex temp = new Complex();
 temp.x = c1.x+c2.x;
 temp.y = c1.y+c2.y;
 return temp;
