In C#, I remember that if you wrote an enum, you would refer to the values of that enum by the enumeration type:
enum MyEnum

//to use a value, you have to write:

MyEnum x = MyEnum.ENUM_A;
Does C++ allow similar syntactic expression? It''s mostly just a code clarity thing; I''d like to be able to do that if possible. I don''t want some kludge like wrapping the enums in a namespace or something; is there something similar built into the language ?
