= enum http://github.com/capnregex/enum == DESCRIPTION: A java like Enum class for ruby. A while ago I was exploring Java, and came across the Enum class, which had some interesting functionality, and I decided that I would like something like it. Conceptually if you just need a unique identifier you may be perfectly happy using a :symbol, and that would likely be a simpler way of having a controll flag. However, if you want to have a set of unique identifiers that you can address, iterate over, assign properties to, etc, then this may be something you would be interested in. == FEATURES/PROBLEMS: Provide the java Enum idiom for Ruby. For examples of use cases, see the examples in test. == SYNOPSIS: class PrimaryColors < Enum enum %w(Red Yellow Blue) end class Colors < Enum enum_field :code enum do RED '#ff0000' GREEN '#00ff00' BLUE '#0000ff' end end == REQUIREMENTS: ruby, rubygems == INSTALL: sudo gem install enum == DEVELOPERS: After checking out the source, run: $ rake newb This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc. == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2010 Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
