Hello, Andreas!

It seems that the values of AS enums are not controlled by an AS compiler.

Although the asITypeInfo::GetEnumValueByIndex(...) function returns enum value as int (in "int *outValue") for example this code compiles:

enum MyEnum {
    myValue = -9223372036854775809


But the actual value of myValue is far out of "int" range.

Thanks. I'll look into this and add the necessary verification that the value actually fits within the 32bits of the type.

Maybe sometime in the future I'll add support for enums of different sizes, but for now all enums are 32bits.
