Is it possible to use overloaded operator in another class function instead of the main function?
i.e. I have 2 class functions under public:
bool Angle::operator< (Angle& a2){...}
Angle Angle::operator- (Angle a2){...}

I want to use the overloaded operator from the first function in the second one. I want the code in the 2nd function to be something like this:
Angle Angle::operator- (Angle a2)
{
if (*this>=a2)
{...}
else
cout<<"You can't subtract greater angle from a smaller one"<<endl;
}


So, can I do that? And if I can how?
Thanks in advance.

I found the error, a silly mistake. :)
I overloaded the operator < and I used >= in the code. So I needed another overloading function or altering the previous one:
Angle Angle::operator- (Angle a2)
{
if (*this<a2)
cout<<"You can't subtract greater angle from a smaller one"<<endl;
else
{...}
}
