Through class conversion, one can assign data that belongs to a particular class type to an object that belongs to another class type.
Let there be two classes ‘A’ and ‘B’. If we want to allocate the details that belong to class ‘A’ to an object of class ‘B’ then this can be achieved by –
B(object of class B) = A(object of class A)
where ‘=’ has been overloaded for objects of class type ‘B’.
Class conversion can be achieved by conversion function which is done by the use of operator overloading.
