c++.beta - Error: ambiguous reference to symbol

The following code (line 7 and 8) causes the Error: ambiguous reference to
symbol

#include <iostream>

int main()
{
enum { zero, one, two, three };

std::cout << zero << " ";
std::cout << one << "\n";

return 0;
}

Low priority.

Here's a more isolated case: void fn(bool i) { } void fn(unsigned char i) { } void fn(void (*f)()) { } int main() { enum { zero, one, two, three }; fn(zero); // Error: ambiguous reference to symbol // Had: fn(bool ) // and: fn(void (*C func)()) fn(one); // Error: ambiguous reference to symbol // Had: fn(bool ) // and: fn(unsigned char ) return 0; } both are fairly bizzarre. Clearly a problem with automatic type conversion. My guess is that it is suppossed to be the underlying type that is used for conversion. This should be an integer according to 7.2-5. sizeof "zero" is 4. Richard
