Overriding the == operator, like in Java/Lua/Python/whatever.

I agree that use equals is a better choice. If operator overloading is implemented, you may experience inconsistency (different instance of builtin boxed values would be unequal according to default semantics, while after overloaded == operator it becomes equal.)

Subject: Overriding the == operator, like in Java/Lua/Python/whatever.

    I've been looking and looking and looking and I
      couldn't find a way to override == to make 2 different instances
      of MyPoint compare == if they have the same coordinates. (I
    guess this also applies to String objects and stuff but I haven't
    tested that)


    So how do I do this?


    (PS: yes, I know, Java has an .equals method, not overridable ==,
    but it's basically the same thing)
