Is there any operator overloading like in cpp

i want to do something like

class Ab:
    var a:int
    var b:int

    func _init(_a,_b):
        self.a = _a
        self.b = _b

    Ab operator + (val:int):
        var ans =,b)
        ans.a += val
        ans.b += val*2
        return ans


var ab =,3)
var ab2 = ab+5

and if it can, how can i make 5+ab as same as ab+5

Math operators can't be overloaded in GDScript. You will have to write functions doing it explicitely and call them.
