I’m attempting to implement a macro which will reduce the boilerplate involved with implementing the core operator traits (Add, Sub, Mul, Div, etc). However, I’m having a bit of trouble with the following section:

```
macro_rules! impl_operator {
($tr: ident, $method: ident) => {
impl $tr<Prime> for Prime {
type Output = Prime;
#[inline]
fn $method(self, rhs: Prime) -> Prime {
Prime {
num: (self.num.$method(rhs.num))
}
}
}
impl<'b, 'a> $tr<&'b Prime> for &'a Prime {
type Output = Prime;
#[inline]
fn $method(&'a self, rhs: &'b Prime) -> Prime {
Prime {
num: (self.num.$method(rhs.num))
}
}
}
};
}
```

In the above example, the `Prime`

type is a custom struct created in my program. The `num`

member is another type that’s defined in an external library. That type already implements the traits that I want; my macro will simply piggy-back off of those implementations.

When implementing an operator trait where the types involves are all references, I receive the following compiler error (when testing, I attempted to implement the `Add`

trait):

```
prime.rs:160:27: 160:31 error: cannot move out of borrowed content [E0507]
prime.rs:160 num: (self.num.$method(rhs.num))
^~~~
prime.rs:167:1: 167:26 note: in this expansion of impl_operator! (defined in prime.rs)
prime.rs:160:44: 160:47 error: cannot move out of borrowed content [E0507]
prime.rs:160 num: (self.num.$method(rhs.num))
^~~
prime.rs:167:1: 167:26 note: in this expansion of impl_operator! (defined in prime.rs)
error: aborting due to 2 previous errors
```

Of course, the issue here is caused by the borrow checker not liking me attempting to consume a reference to the inputs. How can I go about solving this?
