Return Type in Function Overloading

suggest change

Note that you cannot overload a function based on its return type. For example:

std::string getValue()
  return "hello";

int getValue()
  return 0;

int x = getValue();

This will cause a compilation error as the compiler will not be able to work out which version of getValue to call, even though the return type is assigned to an int.
