In order for AngelScript to know how to work with the application registered types, it is necessary to register some behaviours, for example for memory management.
Other advanced behaviours are described with the advanced types.
Most behaviours are implemented as ordinary class methods, except with specific names that the compiler can understand.
In AngelScript all operator overloads are implemented as class methods with predefined names, which is different from C++ where both class methods and global functions may be used. Especially the dual operators, i.e. those that take two operands, usually has one implemented as a class method, and a global function for the reverse order.
Two register C++ operator overloads you'll use the methods described in How to get the address of the application function or method.
Example on how to register operator overloads
The value cast operators are used to allow the scripts to convert an object type to another type by constructing a new value. This is different from a reference cast, that do not construct new values, but rather changes the way it is perceived.
The return type for the cast behaviour can be any type except bool and void. The value cast is meant to create a new value, so if the function returns a reference or an object handle make sure it points to a new value and not the original one.
The object constructors and factories also serve as alternative explicit value cast operators, so if a constructor or factory is already available then there is no need to register the explicit value cast operator.
