    "group"

    I have a class called member. which has some get&set functions for email and name etc.
    but i also want to make some kind of "GROUP" data member, in this case the member either is a normal member, a VIP or an ADMIN. if u get my point... but how do i achieve this? i wouldnt want to go with just strings i was thinking of using some kind of struct? or... i cant realy find a good idea.

    I am also going to save the class in binary, so i think a struct would work

    I'd use enum

    Code:
    enum Group {Normal, Admin, VIP};
    Maybe?
