Defined in header <chrono>
constexpr std::chrono::month operator+( const std::chrono::month&
m, (1) (since C++20)
const std::chrono::months& ms ) noexcept;
constexpr std::chrono::month operator+( const std::chrono::months&
ms, (2) (since C++20)
const std::chrono::month& m ) noexcept;
constexpr std::chrono::month operator-( const std::chrono::month&

1-2) Adds ms.count() months to m. The month value held in the result is computed by
first evaluating static_cast<long long>(unsigned(m)) + (ms.count() - 1), reducing it
modulo 12 to an integer in the range [0, 11], and then adding 1.
3) Subtracts ms.count() months from m and returns the result. Equivalent to return m
+ -ms;
4) If m1.ok() and m2.ok() are both true, returns a std::chrono::months value m such
that m.count() is in the range [0, 11] and m2 + m == m1. Otherwise the returned
value is unspecified.

Return value

1-3) A std::chrono::month holding a month value calculated as described above.
4) A std::chrono::months representing the distance between m1 and m2.


As long as the computation doesn't overflow, (1-3) always return a valid month even
if m.ok() is false.

The result of subtracting two month values is a duration of type
std::chrono::months. That duration unit represents the length of the average
Gregorian month, and the resulting duration bears no relationship to the number of
days in the particular months represented by the operands. For example,
std::chrono::seconds(std::chrono::April - std::chrono::March) is not the number of
seconds in March (2678400s), but 2629746s (30.436875 days).


// Run this code

#include <cassert>
#include <chrono>

int main()
std::chrono::month m {6};

m = m + std::chrono::months(2);
assert(m == std::chrono::month(8));

m = m - std::chrono::months(3);
assert(m == std::chrono::month(5));

constexpr std::chrono::months ms = std::chrono::month(8) - std::chrono::month(6);
static_assert(ms == std::chrono::months(2));
