C++ – Base enum class inheritance

c++enums

Is there a pattern where I can inherit enum from another enum in C++??

Something like that:

enum eBase 
{
   one=1, two, three
};


enum eDerived: public eBase
{
   four=4, five, six
};

Best Solution

#include <iostream>
#include <ostream>

class Enum
{
public:
    enum
    {
        One = 1,
        Two,
        Last
    };
};

class EnumDeriv : public Enum
{
public:
    enum
    {
        Three = Enum::Last,
        Four,
        Five
    };
};

int main()
{
    std::cout << EnumDeriv::One << std::endl;
    std::cout << EnumDeriv::Four << std::endl;
    return 0;
}
