Overloading assignmentby v_o_i_d (Novice)

v_o_i_d has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi i'm new here..and am humbly seeking wisdom from those within...
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to overload operators such as addition(+) AND overload assignment as well. i have searched but found no hard answer-not even vague suggestions.
In my own experiments I have tried to overload and tiescalar in the same class, but FETCH seems to interfere and the tie function causes a loss of context because the overloded operators never work after this. Using the returned object from tie() still works however but then you have 2 individual variables each with separate functionality....Any ideas on how to make custom assignment code like FETCH AND overload operators work in the same class?
Thanks perl monks!
*UPDATE* Just so you know I posted some code in a new reply!
