20.4.2.1.3 Enumerated types [enumerated.types]

Several types defined in Clause [input.output] are enumerated types. Each enumerated type may be implemented as an enumeration or as a synonym for an enumeration.161

The enumerated type enumerated can be written:

enum enumerated { , , , , ..... };

inline const ();
inline const ();
inline const ();
inline const ();
  .....

Here, the names , , etc. represent enumerated elements for this particular enumerated type. All such elements have distinct values.

Such as an integer type, with constant integer values ([basic.fundamental]).
