    Question enumeration

    enum hello {a, b, c, d, e};

    Over here a = 0, b = 1, c = 2 etc....

    Question:
    Is it possible to declare an enum number other than integer like float or double?

    If it is float, 'a' should be 0.0 and b = 1.0 ......

    Thumbs up

    Try assigning the values. If it takes them then u r through. else thats the only way...

    try
    enum hello (a=1.1, b=2.2);


    Try it.

    No. Enumerations are integral values only, just like 'case' values.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
