The ‘=’ is an operator in C++ STL which copies (or moves) a set to another set and set::operator= is the corresponding operator function. There are three versions of this function:
- The first version takes reference of an set as an argument and copies it to an set.
Parameters: The first version takes the reference of an set as argument.
- The second version performs a move assignment i.e it moves the content of an set to another set.
Parameters: The second version takes the r-value reference of an set as argument
- The third version assigns contents of an initializer list to an set.
Parameters: The third version takes an initializer list as argument.
- Why overriding both the global new operator and the class-specific operator is not ambiguous?

- bitset operator in C++ STL
- array::operator[ ] in C++ STL
- multiset::operator= in C++ STL
