Or ofcourse he might simply fix the declaration to:
istream& operator>> (istream& is, const binary& b);
it's funny, when I see code of fellow students or even teachers, it
seems that hardly anyone bothers to use const-qualifiers, or
qualifiers in general
Oh well, I guess I'm also the only one to ever have used "explicit"
in a C++ programming assignment ;-)
