    Doing a course in C++.Net which upto now has been ok and interesting. However Operator Overloading is confusing me to a great deal. There is plenty written on the subject but for Computer Scientists who just love mathematics and complicated text! To find something simple – it does not exist. I can use operator overloading like a parrot but I want to know what exactly is going on…how does the compiler treat an overloaded operator…etc.

    We were asked to make an Exponent class that will allow us to overload the ^ operator so that we can perform exponential notation so that you can have iResult=iNumber ^10 where iNumber equals 10 so that iResult equals 1000. This is my zillionth attempt but the overloaded function is not called..please help.

    This is the class:

    Thanks in advance
