So I am getting this error while trying to over load the cin operator.

I keep getting this error " No operator ">>" Matches these operands"

But this is how all of my examples look. Can anyone be kind enough to point this one out for me?

Here's the base code:

//date.h
class Date
{
int month, day, year;

Public:

friend istream& operator>>(istream&,const Date&);

}




//date.cpp
#include"date.h"
#include<iostream>

using namespace std;

istream& operator>>(istream& strm,const Date& d)
{

cout<<"Enter Day: ";
strm >> d.day;

return strm;
};

istream& operator>>(istream& strm,const Date& d)
{

cout<<"Enter Day: "; // *
strm >> d.day;

return strm;
};




* Ooof. Don't do that (inside the extraction operator, that is). Remember that streams are generic; you could be reading form something other than cin. You wouldn't want a whole spam of "Enter Day: " messages to appear in the console if you were reading Dates from a file, would you?
