comp.lang.c FAQ list · Question 2.23

Q: Are enumerations really portable?
Aren't they Pascalish?

A: Enumerations were a mildly late addition to the language (they were not in K&R1), but they are definitely part of the language now: they're in the C Standard, and all modern compilers support them. They're quite portable, although historical uncertainty about their precise definition led to their specification in the Standard being rather weak (see question 2.22).
