Example that uses an enumerated type variable.
This example uses enumerated type is used in C++ in exactly the same way it was used in ANSI-C with one small exception, the keyword enum is not required to be used again when defining a variable of that type, but it can be used if desired.

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;
enum game_result {win, lose, tie, cancel};
int main(void)
	game_result result;
	enum game_result omit = cancel;
	for (result = win;result <= cancel;result++) {
		if (result == omit){
			cout << "The game was cancelled\n";
		else {
			cout << "The game was played ";
			if (result == win)
				cout << "and we won!";
			if (result == lose)
				cout << "and we lost.";
			cout << "\n";
// Result of execution
// The game was played and we won!
// The game was played and we lost.
// The game was played
// The game was cancelled
