I have broken my wrist so I will keep this sort.. is there any way overload

function long  add(int, int)
function int   add(int, int)

main() {
long a;
int b;
a = add(1,1) // this would use the first add
b = add(1,1) // this would use the second add

I've been tring to convice Walter to consider explicit overloading using the
cast idea Pavel came up with.

//For return types
float abs(float n) {} //Default
int cast(int, long) abs(float n) {}
int cast(double) abs(float n) {}

//For parameters
float abs(float n) {} //Default
float abs(float cast(int, long) n) {}
float abs(float cast(double) n) {}

```Ok thanks. I guess that would lead to alot of problem code, but it could be
usefull for math programming, I wish I had an example off hand but I don't,
as i have been working on a few porjects i have noticed that I could not do
that with c++ and it would have helped me in a few occations.

Thanks Ben
