Self assignment check in assignment operator
In C++, assignment operator should be overloaded with self assignment check.
For example, consider the following class Array and overloaded assignment operator function without self assignment check.
If we have an object say a1 of type Array and if we have a line like a1 = a1 somewhere, the program results in unpredictable behavior because there is no self assignment check in the above code. To avoid the above issue, self assignment check must be there while overloading assignment operator. For example, following code does self assignment check.
