Enum values in their own namespaces/scopes: Scoped Enums (Delphi)

The Wiert Corner – A while ago, I needed several enum types in the same unit with overlapping enumeration values. Putting each in an encompassing type wasn’t possible and I didn’t want to put each in their own unit. Luckily, Delphi 2009 introduced the “scoped enum” feature effectively promoting ...
