as I say I've already found the operator code in 3.7 but now I'm using 3.6 so
could find it but I've found it all now thanks.

I have another problem though. I've got it compiling and to try and test I've
added some std::cout lines in the code, including the trace_pixel method, but
they never appear anywhere? any way I can get these to be shown somewhere? they
don't show in the output of visual studio and they don't show in a command
prompt :(
