Maybe, Enumeration is also not very well implemented in the
current Aldor compiler. Some years ago I tried to use it
heavily and got some strange segfaults after which I was
told better not to use Enumeration.

Don't believe everything you are told about Aldor... ;)

I don't. Part of it an experience of time that I wasted.

Seriously, the Enumeration type is used in an integral
manner in both the Record and Union types, so I think
it is pretty important.

Sure. I was speaking about the compiler, not the language.

But that is just a side remark of no relevance for the
SPAD development.

Au contraire, I think properly implementing Enumeration
as a built-in type in Spad is potentially quite important.

I meant that whether Enumeration is implemented well or not in the Aldor compiler should have no relevance to a proper implementation in SPAD.
Sorry, if I was unclear.


PS: Shouldn't that thread just be in axiom-developer?
