    C++ Operator: How to overload postfix increment and decrement operators?

    Q: How do I overload the postfix increment and decrement operators? (as in x++ or x--)?

    A: To specify the postfix increment and decrement operators, you must specify an int as an argument:

    class MyClass
        MyClass& operator++();    //Prefix increment operator  (++x)
        MyClass  operator++(int); //Postfix increment operator (x++)
        MyClass& operator--();    //Prefix decrement operator  (--x)
        MyClass  operator--(int); //Postfix decrement operator (x--)
