Compiler Error C2677

binary 'operator' : no global operator found which takes type 'type' (or there is no acceptable conversion)

To use the operator, you must overload it for the specified type or define a conversion to a type for which the operator is defined.

The following sample generates C2677:

// C2677.cpp
class C {
public:
   C(){}
} c;

class D {
public:
   D(){}
   operator int(){return 0;}
} d;

int main() {
   int i = 1 >> c;   // C2677
   int j = 1 >> d;   // OK operator int() defined
}
