A *binary operator function*
is a function named operator@
for a binary operator @ that is either
a non-static member function ([class.mfct]) with one non-object parameter or
a non-member function with two parameters.

For an expression x @ y with subexpressions x and y,
the operator function is selected by overload resolution ([over.match.oper]).

If a member function is selected,
the expression is interpreted as

x . operator @ ( y )

Otherwise, if a non-member function is selected,
the expression is interpreted as
operator @ ( x , y )

A *three-way comparison operator function* is an operator function
for the three-way comparison operator ([expr.spaceship]).

A *comparison operator function* is
an equality operator function,
a relational operator function, or
a three-way comparison operator function.
