What are enumerations?

They are a list of named integer-valued constants. Example:enum color { black ,orange=4, yellow, green, blue, violet s};This declaration defines the symbols “black”, “orange”, “yellow”, etc. to have the values “1,” “4,” “5,” … etc. The difference between an enumeration and a macro is that the enum actually declares a type, and therefore can be type checked.
