17.5 Method of description (Informative) [description]

17.5.2 Other conventions [conventions] Type descriptions [type.descriptions] Enumerated types [enumerated.types]

Several types defined in Clause [input.output] are enumerated types. Each enumerated type may be implemented as an enumeration or as a synonym for an enumeration.167

The enumerated type enumerated can be written:

enum enumerated { V0, V1, V2, V3, ..... };

static const enumerated C0 (V0);
static const enumerated C1 (V1);
static const enumerated C2 (V2);
static const enumerated C3 (V3);

Here, the names C0, C1, etc. represent enumerated elements for this particular enumerated type. All such elements have distinct values.

Such as an integer type, with constant integer values ([basic.fundamental]).
