Thumbs up How do I carry out conversion of one object of user-defined type to another?

To perform conversion from one user-defined type to another we need to provide conversion function. Followingprogram demonstrates how to provide such conversion function.

class circle
private :
int radius ;
circle ( int r = 0 )
radius = r ;
} ;
class rectangle
private :
int length, breadth ;
public :
rectangle( int l, int b )
length = l ;
breadth = b ;
operator circle( )
return circle ( length ) ;
} ;
void main( )
rectangle r ( 20, 10 ) ;
circle c;
c = r ;
Here, when the statement c = r ; is executed the compiler searches for an overloaded assignment operator in the class circle which accepts the object of type rectangle. Since there is no such overloaded assignment operator, the
conversion operator function that converts the rectangle object to the circle
object is searched in the rectangle class. We have provided such a conversion
function in the rectangle class. This conversion operator function returns a
circle object. By default conversion operators have the name and return type
same as the object type to which it converts to. Here the type of the object is circle and hence the name of the operator function as well as the return type is circle.
