digitalmars.D.learn - Extend Enum

reply "Mars" <- -.-> writes:
Hello everybody.
I'd like to know if there's a way, to extend an Enum, based on 
version().
I have an Enum, that holds various values, but some are 
different, in other versions. So the alternative would be to 
define the Enum several times.

 version(x)
 {
 enum example
 {
  FOO = 1,
  BAR = 2,
 }
 }
 else
 {
 enum example
 {
  FOO = 1,
  BAR = 3,
 }
 }

Is there a better way to do this? Maybe a class with static consts...? How should I do it? Mars

If it makes sense, you can use version(x) blocks within the single enum definition, as opposed to putting version(x) outside. Alternatively, it may make sense to define the enum value(s) outside to keep the definition of 'example' relatively clean: version(x) { enum BAR_VALUE = 2; } else { enum BAR_VALUE = 3; } enum example { FOO = 1, BAR = BAR_VALUE, } Ali

couldn't find a way to use version inside an Enum. Mars

Me neither. Sorry for the noise. :( Ali
